I went to an orchid society gathering at Keith's yesterday. His greenhouse is three stories high. Here are some highlights.

Another member brought these. The Bulbo with the fringy things was sitting in a breeze and the fringes were bobbeling away!!
The Miltonia flowers were the largest I've seen!

I especially liked the food (Keith's wife is Thai and I adore here cooking!) and I had several in depth conversations with members which I loved.

Wow, what a beautiful tour. I can hear Apopka calling me. It starts softly and builds to a roar. If Lindsey comes down we'll have a ball.

Nine requisites for contented living: Health enough to make work a pleasure. Wealth enough to support your needs. Strength enough to battle and overcome your difficulties. Grace enough to confess and forsake your sins. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor. Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others. Faith enough to make real the things of God. Hope enough to remove all anxious fears."
