    When We are at ANY store my husband always tries to avoid the Garden/floral departments. He's smart, those take hours to get through if they have Any orchids. Then of coarse it takes time to decide which one I want. Hint: if it takes long enough OR I get one, put it back, pick another over and over my husband get a little impatient and I get 2!!! LOLOLOl

    Beautiful phals - better than shoes. Have you thought about the Ladies' Slipper orchids? Best of both worlds.

    My grocery store carried the most hideous looking "dyed" orchids for Mother's Day! Couldn't find any I liked anywhere, so I got a beautiful bromiliad instead to add to my collection.

    LOL- I'm guilty of this. Pick one up, stare at it, put it back. Pick another one up, stare at it, put it back. Pick first one up. Repeat. The store had mini phals sitting in water...and confession...I dumped all their water out in the other plants so they wouldn't sit there. (haha - blushing!) The one I ended up buying had only a few good roots left. I'm still hoping this one can be saved. Today, one of it's last buds bloomed

    When I came home with another half dozen the other day, my husband raised his eyebrows at me and asked what I was going to do with them. (Here's where it gets good!) When I told him that I was going to take some to my office, he reacted strongly, "No! You can't take them to your office - I want them to stay here!"

    So now I guess I'll have to buy everything in duplicate!!
