I'm starting to get ideas. We need more orchid interest but I don't know our buddies e-mails. Maybe I'll d-mail them.

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."

Kathy, I took your advice and went to an orchid seminar at Al's Garden Center in Woodburn, OR today. Wow, was that fun and I learned so much (drop in the bucket I'm sure). I joined the Orchid Society and received an orchid plant for joining. What a fun afternoon. Thanks for that advice Kathy.

I keep saying some day I want to go to MA. My grandmother was from Lynn, MA.
I did find out yesterday at the seminar that I don't want to grow orchids outside a pot. They need way to much care (daily). Weekly works great for me. But, who nows maybe at some point I will feel different about it. : ) It would be fun to go to those places with you, I know I would learn so much. Learning is such a fun thing to do.

For the first time this weekend, being new to orchids, my DH and I dined among the orchids!! They are growing in a corner of the kitchen and gloriously surrounded our dinner. It was magic. 15 plants are blooming out of 23. DH says they seem to be multiplying "like rabbits". LOL. I fear an obsession coming on..... Lovey dubby

Will take picture of the two that just opened up. Will post later.
Thanks Kathy, wondered why I wasn't seeing any activity yesterday on the Orchid Cubit on my home page. It was gone all together. : (
