    Smile Couldn't resist!

    This is a first in our town! Orchids in the supermarket that aren't phals!
    Nelly Iser ( or a close relative) She has 4 spikes! And my favourite of the 2

    Miltonia Red Tide. Aaaaaaahhhhhhh! Judi

    And it was buy one get one free! And as I only went to this supermarket because I had a voucher, the 2 actually cost the equivalent of $6

    WOW! I LOVE the Miltonia! What a deal! How could you stop at just two? When they are giving them away at prices like that, get more and then use them to trade or give them as gifts for special occasions - that is my motto! heheheheee... They are wonderful! You must be thrilled!

    Cheers,

    Beautiful, I always say that the orchids followed me home. What has worked for us for years is that we both have money that we spend as we want and no complaining allowed. His passion is tools and they have a way of following him home.
