    It just amazes me when people can simply grow orchids on their patios, and amazing orchids at that! I like it alot, thanks for influencing the good dreams.

    I love the color and shape, Cin! Metropolitan ice cream for sure!

    What's the other Onc behind it? Have you posted that one? The flowers look pretty large.

    ...Yeah--look at all those dancing fat ladies! I like it!
