    SPRING arrived late just yesterday.

    One of my lapsed hobbies is growing Orchids so Wilma And I went to the Annual Orchid Society Exhibition, proud I resisted buying heaps, too many irons in the fire.

    Spring hit us suddenly with 26 degrees C yesterday. The Cities Floriade is a goer right now will try to get there as well.

    Peter.

    I admire orchids, but just cannot keep the things alive.

    Very nice Peter, I also have some orchids. I haven't watered them for 18 months but they are doing okay.

    Only 26 degrees... get some real weather we were at 28 today and its autumn!! Just cut 3 cum of oak logs (only 10 more to go) the pool is at 21 and I was too hot; as for the orchids well here we keep them on the north face of the house with a little bowl of water under the aerial roots and for the last 20 year it flowers just like your top right photo/ Have fun Peter .

    Lovely orchids Peter, the missus has managed to keep a couple going for years by neglecting them with great care
