    What a nice setting for your orchids, Maura. I like the fact that there are other types of flowering plants there, too. It would be wonderful if you could put a lounge chair there, in the mist of all the flowers...What a nice place to sit & relax! Betty :-)

    We have two teak folding chairs that just about fit on the terrace, but it's a tight fit - it will be especially nice to sit outside there when the Atlanta weather drops below 90 everyday!

    Thank you - I only wish it was 8 times bigger - I'm acquiring orchids much faster than space!

    Well, if you must know, few of the orchids, especially the phals spend the day outside - they go out for the night cooler temps and humidity. Right now the terrace is at its best from 6 am to 7:30 am - before i have to bring almost all of them in from the heat. More likely I will be extremely jealous when you have cyms spiking and mine are in revolt from too-warm temps and/or too little light - my monster cym lives outside in the shade and is learning to be a southerner - but we'll see if the drop i temp in October will actually set spikes - lots of new growth though.

    EXACTLY! - at around 7:30 every am, I get to enjoy the whole spectacle until I have to bring virtually all of them in for the day. This hobby is addictive but a LOT of work!
