Hello. My name is Shelley. I have an addiction. I thought I had it under control. I said I could handle it myself. I think I might have been wrong. Somebody, please stop me......
I bought another orchid plant. I am weak. But she's a beauty, isn't she? :-)
This is the first time that I've ever seen an orchid with a variegated leaf. I was innocently walking by the floral department in Safeway. I had no intention of making any purchases there when this beast stuck out it's roots and tripped me saying, "Please buy me". How could I refuse? This is my 26th plant. Yeah, yeah, I know...I must be crazy. I live in a condo. I promised myself no more plants when we moved in here. But somehow they keep finding their way into my life. They require so little from me and give me so much in return. When they bloom, the flowers last for at least 4 months. Every time one of the plants gets a new flower spike, I wait in anticipation to find out what the flower will look like. Now, a very dedicated gardener would label their plants so that they know what the flower would look like. Me...I like to be surprised. That is part of the fun of growing orchids. I have another one blooming right now. If I remember, I'll take a picture of it tomorrow and post it here. Plus I have one plant that will have flowers in the next week or so. I'll post that picture too.

And now you know what brings me joy. And yes, it really is an addiction. Ask any other orchid grower. LOL

Whenever I see orchids I think of you ... I also wish I was closer so that I could bring you a "fix" in person and brighten your day.
Know that thoughts of you and prayers of support are there daily!

A little off-topic but just wanted to say I liked the layout of the site

Hi Vancouver Singles,

I'm glad that you like it. This is my first time setting up a website so I'm pretty green at it. I appreciate any comments, positive or negative that people have about it. Thanks for stopping by. Do you know someone with MM?

Hi, Shelley,
My name is Elisa. My husband has MM for 10 years now. This year he has been feeling worse. His bones are been affected. He is going to start radiation next week. I do not know what to expect as he gets worse, but I can understand your feelings as I am going through that now. Send me a note I would appreciate it.

A business that makes nothing but money is a poor kind of business.
