    Smile Miltassia Estralita 'Sweet Senorita'

    I bought myself a new plant for the house. I like to have flowers inside and usually its either phals or oncidiums indoors. I almost ordered one of these the other day, so I was very suprised when Rich's guy at the flea market hauled one out of his van. He hadn't even set it down and I had Rich grab it. This lovely plant has eight spikes and the price was so nice I couldn't leave it behind. I just sit and stare at the lovely flowers that are opening I find it so pretty. I'll repost a couple pics when it blooms completely out. It should be quite a show! Thanks again Rich!

    Connie, could you send Rich to live in Yuma, AZ? And could you get him to bring his guy at the flea market with him?

    And again I have to say - Flea Market? I have to drive 2 hours to a 'Flea Market' like that, it is called an Orchid nursery here, the ONLY place you would find a beauty like that. Flea Market - tube socks and knock off cologne!

    Two hours? Heck, I can drive 2 hours and end up in Gila Bend, Arizona. Google that and you won't complain about your nursery being 2 hours away!!

    Yes Flea Market and NO i'm not letting them move away. lol The flea markets here have tube socks too...FYI. The flea market closest to me used to have an orchid guy but I haven't seen them around in a year or so now. Now that I know about the other one i'll be going there too.

    Too funny. Sitting at my desk at work (don't tell my boss) and chuckling over this thread. This site is just too much fun AND such a great support to all of us.
    Speaking of support - don't forget that this site has a support button too - it is labeled Donate. (like how I worked that in there Bruce?)

    Yeah that reminds me....now that i'm busy on here again I need to turn the subscription thing back on. For those that have a growing collection it's not much...even 5 bucks a month. Thanks for the shout out Don.
