This is one of the Phals. bought at the grocery
store. It is in bloom again, with only 3 blossoms.
This is last year's phal. that was infused with
bright blue. The original color is this white. At the end of January there
were 7 flowers open.
It now has nine blossoms. I accidentally
knocked one off when it was first opening buds, so it should have 10 blossoms,
This is the little Phal. with the variegated
leaves. It is nearly finished blooming, but it has been showing flowers for at
least 5 weeks.
I found this little mini cattleya in the grocery
store for $14.00; last week. It's clean and healthy.
I have started getting the photos for the August
album on my web page resized and processed. I hope I can get at least one album
done this year. Last year I did July and added yet more pages to the gardening
page. Once I finish the monthly albums, I want to do the annual albums, showing
the changes in the garden from year to year.

I have several time consuming hobbies that I enjoy. Gardening was my first passion. When I got my computer my garden suffered some neglect but for all that the garden still looks pretty good.
To those two I have more recently added photography. Photography relates to all of my hobbies, as well as to travel, and seems to tie them all together.
I have a high maintenance, wonderfull husband, who remains the primary interest.
