I was away on business for about 3 weeks taking 4 states (Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Utah) in stride. I left my wife to tend to all the orchids. When I got home I had 3 cattleyas showing new growths, 6 phals showing new leaves, the phrag had a new growth, the oncid intergenerics had either tonz of roots sprouting or showing new growths. Needless to say I won't hesitate for a second to let my babies with my baby
There's an orchidfest being held this weekend in town here and of course we went yesterday. I knew I wasn't going to buy much as I was only looking for mini oncids (twinkle in particular), novelty paphs, or my first mini cymb. I couldn't find anything that I really wanted, however, my wife did find something she liked. This is the first time she was pushing to buy something, usually it's me wanting something and her trying to stop the purchase. I told her for $35 the phal was not worth it. I kept on walking around and 5 minutes later I saw her walking around with the phal she'd been looking at. I asked her why she would spend $35 for something that I didn't like (I did like it but I have so many phals already). She looked at me and smiled. She had managed to get it down to $20, something I would never have been able to do.
Yes she's been bitten by the bug too and will now accompany me happily to any show or sale. Happy me!!! Here's a picture of the phal SHE brought home and a picture of my complete collection on the 2 stands and the phone table (or orchid table as it is known now).
Yes I am aware that there are 1.5 empty shelves.

You should have your wife do your shopping for you Richard, LOL.
I think your wife has good taste
Wow, she did well. That Minho is gorgeous.
I think that phal is great I have and now wish I hadn't given away the other two I had,And I also wish my wife would come home with things like that.Some people are just lucky.
I just cut the spike off my Minho Princess as it's looking bad. (your wife has excellant taste!) What a pretty phal....
very good taste indeed!
and look at all those branches on the spike too
That looks amazing! Such a great choice!
I'm so happy for you. Isn't it wonderful being able to share your joy with your spouse? Very pretty phal too!
