Hey, just wait till you've been retired for a few years...I have to look at the computer to know what day of the week it is!
Todd may be under water by now! From what I see on the news, the East coast is getting hammered by storm, while out here, we're getting warnings about lightening...we MAY get up to 1 inch of rain this week in some areas. At my house, we haven't gotten any measurable amount. I love to hear the thunder though. It sure beats the Disneyland fire works and the planes at John Wayne airport! Hilarious!

That storm had the opposite effect here. It sucked the moisture out of the air and dropped the humidity by 20 percent. It is very pleasant now but highs are still near 90.

Wonderful show!!! Interesting zygo, wish ansellias weren't so big! Hilo Blaze is very uplifting and the pink edges are gorgeous on the catt. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby Is it big or a mini (hard to tell). As far as the messy rail, those hummers are worth the mess! Your collection is growing Carol! How many orchids do you think you have now?

Very nice, Carol. I love the Hilo Blaze 'Hot'.

I read in the paper that the Sun Coast Orchid Society was having a show and sale today so after church I headed down to Largo. There was a beautiful vanda there but they wanted $90.00 so I let it pass. Four of the little orphans did follow me home however. Here is Potinara Hoku Gem "Freckles" (Bl Richard Meuller X Slc Tangerine Jewel).
