Re: Orchids

Thank you Linda,

It's not that I have the bug that baddly, but more of a fascination with
what that slipper orchid looks like in it's natural envoirment.  I want to
photograph it, and see it's native surroundings.  I want to see it with my
own eyes and not through the eyes of someone else.  It's something that I am
having a very difficult time explaining to my husband who for the life of
him can not understand my desire to see this.

DH out of horrible feelings of guilt over the broken spike on the Dragon's
Blood x Kevin's Wine, bought me an enormous Cymbidium yesterday, Cymbidium
"Kakadu" crystal.  It's in full bloom and the only orchid that I have that
is fragrant.  The smell is filling up the living room and I need to do some
research on the conditions that I need to provide for it!
