    lol UGH. I put beer and slugs on the same level. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    My orchids are enjoying the cooler, rainy weather. Gotta love new spikes on 90% dead orchids. I do need to unload some of them. I have waaaaay too many after The Great Lowes Rescue of 2003 ($548 worth of plants for $5).

    They migrated in again last night because we were heading into the 40s for a couple nights. They'll go back out tomorrow in time for some more rain. The hardest part of bringing them in is peering around a tree at sundown trying to find small mounts hanging in branches. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    The 40s are returning for the next couple nights. Some orchids have to come back in, especially the mottled Paphs and recently deflasked seedlings. But a lot of the others will just have to button their coats and deal with it.

    Yes we've been having such strange weather. In May we had numerous days in the 90s...now its June and temps have dropped with chilly nites and cool days. What tha'?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] We also had a torrential rain storm that dropped 3-4" inches of rain in a short time. I didn't mind that because it filled the bogs to overflowing and I got my rain barrel filled. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Hasn't been cold enough to bring any plants in but it sure is unusual for this late in June. Its nice not being so hot though.
