    I have to wait 'til 18"?

    Oh no, I have a looong wait!
    So many things to go wrong
    so many ways to kill a paph.
    It's always the ones that you don't ask the age of,
    that are the youngest.
    If I looked closer when I picked 'em out,
    I probably could have seen the agar on his root.
    *sigh*
    On a positive note,
    I think it's cute that the Hsinying cross
    has hairs & a halo.
    And the unfurling Bel Royal
    looks like that dorsal is gonna have some nice stripes.

    Well, it's nice to know I can be a temptress in some form - - even if it is only as the owner of a beautiful orchid! LOL. You get a lot of orchid shows in OZ, don't you?? Can be very dangerous to the checking account...

    Well, I guess because it's too far to go anywhere else in the world, we try and make our own fun

    Also, it's just that time of the year, Winter and Spring shows are all the go.. but come summer and the whole decmber fest and nulla, nil, zippo, nuthin! It's like Xmas with no Orchid Pressies... grrr...

    Oh, and I am not allowed to buy anything today because I am saving all my pennies for next weekend, where there is hopefully a Bel Royal .

    Cheers
    Tim
