Wow, Jim gave you such a sweet treasure, Alice.
Let's hope we all get some rain from this next system coming through, and then the critters won't be so desperate for food and water as to eat the orchid buds.
I have hardly any buds left on my little Enc. tampensis out on the oak tree this year. There were quite a few a week or two ago, and they're disappearing. I can't protect that one, as it's firmly attached to the oak branch now.
