    I love to give the mini phals as gifts. Everyone has room on the kitchen windowsill for one of these lovelies! You have some pretty phals...can't wait to see what else you get.

    Now I shall have to look for spaces to put them when they do come . No mini-phals though, my taste lies elsewhere today.
    Yes, you have a greenhouse so you get to choose more, bigger orchids than I. I have a caseof orchid envy but the mini phals fit very nicely on my kitchen windsill and make washing up so much more pleasant. Happy Birthday shopping! - martha

    What can I possibly say to that Martha, other than happy washing up ? And don't spoil it by buying a dish-washer....
