This orchid's last horah....usually all long gone...I was cleaning out some dead stuff from some of my pots on the patio...and what a pleasant surprise. One last bloom, as if saying goodbye, see you next year!! I actually brought the pot in long enough to get the blue background. :-)

    The lilly is beautiful and the blue background is perfect for it! I see that you and Richard Knight are cousins. I have a couple of my cousins on JPG also, Donna and Jerry Carpenter (brother and sister) and my daughter Lori Reece is also on JPG. It's great to have family members with the same interests!
