I FINALLY got mine done today...it took 6 hours...and 3 visits to the Jackson Hewitt kiosk at my local Walmart to getRdone!...Sadly, no refund for me...but it was less owed than feared...I 'might ' have money left to shop at the Miami Redlands show after all!

Ours were done a week ago (we thought). Got a call from the accountant yesterday that we had forgotten something. So DONE again. Smiling

The first of my Pot. Inspiration 'Coral' has almost finished opening. She shimmers in the sunlight. No fragrance yet.

Ken..that's a stunner! What I think of as the 'classic' corsage flower.
I went to my local super market (Publix) this afternoon..they always have a selection of flowering plants , with the occasional colored Phal. thrown in. Today I stopped dead in my tracks as the employee was just unwrapping and displaying a bunch of new arrivals from Hawaii.
Can you believe I got these for $14.99?

wasn't it just last week that I was whining about my Jfk. Apple blossom being yellow and not pink??? This one is blooming upside down but I'm thrilled to pieces!

Lindsey, you got those at Publix? I've never seen anything close to those at a Publix.

Wow! Your grocery is outdoing itself in the orchid department. Those are gorgeous! That is a nice Apple Blossom, even upside down. The color seems very intense - maybe because its just opening? Or...?

I'm thinking I need to run back up to the grocery store and buy a lottery ticket!
Yes, Jim ..at the one at 56 and Bruce B Downs.
Daisy, this plant has been AT THE VERY TOP of my list since around 2010 when Kathy and possibly Ursula posted pictures of theirs. This past fall, I found one in Miami, and was over the moon with joy...until it bloomed YELLOW!

Turns out that the first is probably 'NN' and the 'NN' got rubbed off. This one just says Iwan. apple blossom (pink)

I think we will all head to Publix tomorrow. What a find, I doubt ours will have them but they did eventually get the vandas last fall so anything is possible Crossing Fingers!

My Appleblossom is still a month away from blooming.

But this Dendrobium tetragonum is flowering on and off this indoor season.

I love that Dendrobium Ursula! Weirdly gorgeous. How big do they get?

I would have had to start two days before yesterday to get to Publix tomorrow. Smiling

Daisy, it is not that big of a plant. The individual new growths reach now ca 1 foot, but they are slender.
