    Smile My Little Family - so far

    Hi Everyone,
    My name is Sue and I joined you last week. I thought that I would just take the time to introduce you all to my babies and let you see what I've got. So far it's only Phals but I will be getting two Pharagmipediums next week; Caudatum /Wallisii and a Mont Fallu. As I said my collection is only small but steadily going to get bigger. I can't wait for that. I will need to invest in a black backdrop cloth but for the time being you'll have to just love the lilac walls.

    Thanks for the compliment! I wish I could take the credit for them but that belongs to the shops were I bought them although, some have since produced more buds and are growing leaves so maybe I can take a little praise for them! Coming from you it is praise indeed though so thanks for that.

    They are lovely especially the big purple Pahl. It's blooms are perfect and I think it is producing some more buds well, I'm sure it looks as if it is -fingers crossed. They all came from a shop so the credit belongs to the green house but next year hopefully the credit will be mine all mine!

    That's a really impressive collection of phalaenopsis. And they all look very healthy.

    Well thank you. I am proud of them but I have only had them for two months or there abouts. If I still have them next year then the credit will be all mine. I have some new leaves and new buds coming on so maybe there'll still be here by next year.

    I'm pleased with them. They make me smile so let's hope that they will last.
