It seems like a good time of year for NOID Dendrobiums:

Thanks. They just posted a piece of what aired on TV. I think it runs about twice that long. The Extension Service taped it and I should get it on CD the next time I go out there. Such fun. Meanwhile, I'm working like a dog to put in yet another garden. I'm trying to get everything done before I get too old.

Jim Hilarious!

Of course, Kathy. By the way, if I get a CD of the entire interview, is there a way to post it?

I would upload to your computer and upload that to youtube. Then you could put the link like you did here or post the embedding code so it shows in the text box.

I would love to see the whole thing!!

Some things are blooming here -
A second seedling from the 2008 Hoosier Orchids going-out-of-business sale has a first spike. ( the other plant started a growth cycle. )

A second ( of 3) spikes on the C. mossiae x labiata ( or whatever x labiata) is scenting the sun-lit greenhouse

The "not Lc Irene Finney" opened another spike.
Thumb of 2011-11-05/Ursula/16a1d4

Lc Mini Purple 'Shibuya' SM/JOGA I wish I could get the color a little better, this is a deeply saturated strong pink on a relatively large bloom. The plant was growing in two directions, but one side was lost to black-rot ( thank you Hurricane Irene Grumbling ), but that side had a live eye left and is growing again too.

I am happy to see the 2 spikes on my old Aerangis biloba now pretty much open. I am afraid not all buds make it, but "I take it". My other, mounted plant is also in spike.

Chrisanda Memoria Anri Bracker is blooming some more

It must be floofy season at your house, Ursula. I love them all. Your are a bit ahead of me but I have some in spike. We had a big cold front come through bringing us a couple of days of drizzle and a strong breeze from the north. Signs of things to come. It cleared yesterday and temps bottomed out this morning. I see it was 56 at the Tampa airport and 59 here in the lanai with the windows open. I may turn on the heat for a few minutes just to get the chill out of the house. We Floridians are such softies.

Thank you Jim.
59 is chilly for me too, at least inside. I set the minimum greenhouse temp to 60 degr F, but it is a couple degrees cooler by the door in the morning. The fish got their own heater.
I am not that much looking forwards to Winter.... except for the cookie baking now this month.
