Bree, I am glad you started the new thread. Very nice looking Cym blooms. Thumbs up

And, I am sure others will agree with me - I would love to see more of your greenhouse, please? You have a lot of interesting stuff!

Yes, by all means, Bree. Please post some pics of your greenhouse and your general orchid set-up.

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."

Hurray! I agree Love to see your set up. Here's a perfect place to show us http://cubits.org/orchids/thre...

Thanks so much for starting the July thread, Bree. I looked around and saw the usual suspects here and decided someone with something new should start up. I gardened with my son all day to get ready for my daylily show this weekend here. I am finding out that he and I work great together! Thumbs up

Love your cym! I am a big fan of cyms and have a lot of them. I especially love the green and red lip combo (like our banner and yours!).

The Vandas are starting to do their thing for the Summer in the cage. Both Vanda David Gardner plants are opening spikes.
Here is a backlit afternoon shot.

Ascda Yellow Brick Road -
This one is fragrant, but I would have to climb on a ladder to sniff the blooms.
