    Default Milt. Maui Sunset

    Had a tooth pulled yesterday so I thought I deserved a new orchid. Makes perfect sense to me. Got this guy in the Flower District with 4 spikes. It's fragrance fills the entire living room. The other one is my first re-bloom of a Milt. Princess Diana (the pink one) that I picked up last summer. Also nicely fragrant.

    I agree. Perfect reason for a new orchid, and both of those are just stunners.

    The 5 orchid rule does not take effect unless the missing tooth actually shows. Sadly, molars that can replaced by a bridge are only worth one

    who is the rule maker on that one???? Must be a downstate thing...up here a tooth that shows is worth at least a major spree.

    pffft... i only ever got a dollar from the tooth fairy! An orchid as a replacement is a much better trade!
