Hey Everyone,
yesterday when i posted those funny photos of the dog i somehow COMPLETELY forgot to mention that my wee wittle blog has hit a milestone, it's now had over 500 VIEWS! OMG OMG HOW COOL IS THAT?!, the top countries being; United States, Australia, Russia, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, South Africa, Phillipines, Netherlands and India, in the past day i have gotten hits from some of those countries as well as Spain, and in the past week i have gotten those countries as well as Belgium and Estonia.... oh how i wish it didn't just show the top 10, i love seeing all the places around the world, i find it so interesting.... so a big THANKYOU to all you wonderful people out there, you really make me feel special :).

also, as i mentioned this week the... can't be bothered so i'm just gonna write the acronym.... this week i mentioned that EDOS show was on this weekend.  well i'll have 7 plants benched.... i have about 10 others that will flower NEXT week.... isn't that always the way?! oh well, well here is a quick, blurry shot from my iPhone of what is going along, please excuse the mess.

top to bottom, left to right; Dendrobium gracilicaulle, Brassocattleya Unknow, Phalaenopsis Tying Shin Cupid x Phalaenopsis Carribean Sunset, Dendrobium keithii, Sarcochilus falcatus, Paphiopedilum hirsutissimum var. esquirolei, Dendrobium kingianum.
well, as much as i wish i could keep blogging... i've found an odd joy in it, i really must get to bed because i have to be up at 6:00am in the morning to do some last minute gardening in preparation for mum because she is teaching in her shop tomorrow and the ladies will be having their lunch in the garden so i have to move some orchids into the shade house, finish potting some other and just generally clean up the mess that i have a habit of making... hehe oops :)... then after that off to the EDOS show, i'll be there all day each day this weekend because i just LOVE the show, i'll be going around periodically doing the rolling raffle but the rest of the time i'll be taking photos, talking to people and just generally making a nuisance of myself :)

Night night everyone, and for those with orchids, may they keep on blooming.... and PREFERABLY IN TIME FOR YOU TWICE ANUAL ORCHID SOCIETY SHOW!!!! hehehehe :)


  1. Congrats on your milestone, Michael. No surprise that the U.S. is your number one reader base -- we love garden blogs here! Keep on blogging!

    1. Thanks Pam, and as i've found, there are just HUNDREDS of you all, and i'm always drooling and dieing of jealousy because you all have a lot of plants over there that we can't get over here... oh well :)

      and don't you worry about me continuing to blog, i LOVE it for some reason

  2. Congratulations on your blog milestone!

Happy Gardening :)
