Thumbs up Hi!

I don't usually do this but what the heck. I live in San Leon, TX. Don't bother looking it's not even on the map. It's Galveston County, between Kemah and Galveston Island. I love gardening and have done so for years. Last year I had to let things go because DH had a little bout with cancer. we are starting to get out and about again and the yard just looks terrible after a year of neglect. So I made a decision to grow less Things that have to be matained in the yard in tjhe hot sun. Going with tropicals and things that can live without a lot of attention and yard work in our sun. But then I HAVE to have something to baby,so i started looking at orchids in July and I am already an addict.They are so awesome. I have 3 phals plus one with a keikei that had an accident.Think I'm gonna lose both 4 cattleyas, 2 dens phal type,4 oncidium intergenerics,and a very young vanda that I don't have a clue what to do with. Learning is fun! I want more and now I want mounts! Gladys

Hi Gladys,
Years ago I lived in Seabrook which is fairly close to Kemah, and made several trips out to Galveston (past Texas City, (pee-you) to enjoy the surf on the coast. I'm sure it's changed a lot from the late 60's!
