Time to start the second half of the month! What fabulous blooms so far. We came from here. http://cubits.org/orchids/thre...

Bc. Punakea (C. Lulu x Bc. Maikai) is open. Three more buds to go. Good sized bloom for a Binosa.

Laelia anceps v. alba 'Sterling Dickenson' is opening today.

Blc. Solar Flare 'Paradise' has such a great form. Ctna Why Not x Lc. Gold Digger just glows. Tiny catt flowers with a punch on Slc. Mem. Alvin Begeman 'Poem.'

Great start to the new thread, Kathy. All are nice but my favorites are Laelia anceps v. alba 'Sterling Dickenson' and Blc. Solar Flare 'Paradise' .

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."
