Default Anticipation - the ultimate drug

The next couple of weeks are going to prove themselves to be rather exciting! I have five plants coming over from Carter & Holmes...and then I have nine plants coming over from Orchid Inn and the wonderful Sam Tsui! VERY EXCITED!

And the ultimate killer! The day my twelve from Cloud's arrived, I spent two out of seven hours after seeing it was out for delivery pacing in front of a window! I can't wait to see the pics!

I just ordered about 15 plants too...but I spread them out.

I just LOVE getting packages!
I get home and then "Oh, is that for ME????"
And of course it's a beautiful orchid

Last week I got three little vandas from Carmela's, a catt from ebay, two onc. with a "bonus orchid" from Orchidaceae. All on a different day!
This week I got two phals from Krull's Smith which have to be the nicest phals I have received yet over the past 5 years...and two huge catts from them that were suppose to be seedlings
Next week I expect three catts to arrive and then my last three the week after

Then I'm good until spring

Of course that is only on-line ordering...if I go to a show or something, that could be quite different

I guess if I want packages over winter I'll have to order things online like boots and purses etc.

Well, I grow them under lights in my closet, but I have just ran out of room with my 12 that I got a couple of weeks ago, and the 4 that I just got.

Wow Kelo, the mailman is really starting to know you by now! You have some nice stuff coming from C&H. It wasn't too difficult to order from them?

Easy: make more space My windowsills filled up, so I got some shelves. Just need to get some more lights for it. I also buy more mounts now, because they take up the unoccupied vertical space!

This is my kitchen with all but two miltonias - obviously before the next two deliveries.

My husband and I enclosed the back porch into a greenhouse. We finished this past May.
It's about 23' x 14' but I only have benches along two walls.
I went in there with about 70 plants....if I count the ones not here yet I'm up to about 220 now

Took me May-June-July-August...4 months to fill it up!
Time for another construction project
