    You could say that...lol. When I can't take watching tv or the internet anymore I usually end up out back looking for something to putter with. I may downsize and get rid of a few cattleya this summer, but other than that i'm happy with the plants i've got now. I have just enough to keep busy, but not so much that it is a job.
    And thanks to everyone for the nice comments. It is my little piece of heaven on earth back there.

    LOL Oh too funny...you are right! I remember when I began collecting orchids when people would give away orchids I thought they were mad! It's still hard for me to part with my babies, but I do at times need to share a section here or there. Luckily I have several friends who are kind enough to help me out with my overage when I finally break down and section the monsters. Speaking of which there is a Maxima out there growing lots of pbulbs and fat roots with out a sign of a bud and if it doesn't bloom soon I think it's losing it nice cozy bulb pan and it's getting sectioned. If that happens i'm gonna have a ton of sections...again. And it is a nice problem to have.
    ....just spent the entire afternoon moving a few things around to get the cattleya into a little higher sun that were too far back. Yup...definitely don't need any more. LOL It's either hire a gardener (someday when I become independently wealthy), or quit buying orchids. hmm...

    I love these grow area threads! Connie, hope you don't get too much blow tomorrow and the collection is fine! Is your porch exposed? I'm pretty fortunate; my little backyard is protected from serious blow by taller houses around me but they still get a nearly constant light breeze for good air circulation.

    I was lucky and all the plants were watered thoroughly by mother nature, and only one plant fell over. I went out the day before and made sure they were all snug together with baskets on the outside. Potted plants fall over ten times more than baskets. Today I get to be lazy, and just take pictures. I may need to spray, I haven't gone out to check yet.

    Holy geez Connie viewing that orchid bar made my heart beat quickly. Everything looks so wonderful and such creative ideas. I'll be sure to inform my husband of his potential for expanded duties. I'm hiding those pic's from my orchids or they will want to come to your house. Do you ever leave that area? and, If so why? Nice job!!!
