Thanks guys. I haven't been growing orchids for very long, just a year and a half, so I'm very much a beginner. But oh, the addiction...LOL. I've managed to collect about 55 so far, and there's no end in sight. The blooms you see were plants I purchased in bloom recently; can't claim to have grown them myself. The object will be to get them to rebloom of course...

I just recently started growing them under lights, so we'll see how they do, and yes many of them will be year 'round under lights. I initially started with two shelves in front of a south window. As my collection has expanded, I needed more space and since there wasn't any more available in front of the window, I've added lights. Or I should say my DH added them for me...

We got hit with a frost here last night .. I won't be able to tell how badly the gardens were affected until I get out for a look around .. but .. truth be told .. I am thinking that things will be 'bleak' when the boys arrive .. BUT .. I do have a few TRICKS up my sleeves :-)

joannabanana - great gardens. It's easy to see that the boys were happy visiting there. And they also enjoyed Grow_Jo's gardens and orchids. fancyvan - who's the friend that joined them at your house? So glad all your furry friends got to meet them too. And I enjoyed the pics of your garden and some sight seeing.

Sandy - we'll be thinking of winter activities by the time the lads visit us, I think. Skating on the canal, snowshoeing, etc.

I look forward to seeing the northern Calgary garden.

Thanks, Joanne - it's Pink Cleome, or Spider Queen. they also come in white and pale purple. They're self-seeding, and very prolific.

btw - here's a pic of them next to my Hibiscus - just bloomed today :-)

hahahaha too funny - register them for the polls...
They're such an ancient race, they were around Before elections lol
I'm trying to picture a wood nymph electing a tree as Prime Minister LOL

I've been trying to track them with the tracking # I have, and it doesn't look like they've moved, but the website probably doesn't get updated too often. I selected to receive an email upon delivery. I'll keep checking to see where they are, on their journey to Ontario.

I'm not surprised at the delay. I mailed a handbell back to the factory in Pennsylvania on Sept. 2 and it didn't even leave Canada until the 5th. I live an hour from the border.

I DO look forward to more activities when they arrive.
