Missed this! What fun to learn where everyone is!

Philly born and bred, and started growing orchids when I lived near Allentown, Pa. Moved to North Carolina (outside Charlotte) in the mid '70s with the orchids and horses, then came to central Oklahoma about 16 year ago, again with the orchids and horses. Guess I'm stuck here, land of tornadoes, droughts, ice storms, and BUGS - but I'm finally thinking of it as home.

I'm from Montreal in Canada.
It's a beautiful city with way to much snow in winter and no where to put it but I love it none the less.
I was threatened... huh nudge with a knife.... huh... invited here by Cody!
And so far I like it a lot! ^^
I did not receive my Hogwart's letter so I left the Shire to become a Jedi... huh... orchid grower!

Of course! That way, if someone's plants go missing, I am the last of the suspects! ;) :character-yoshi:

I'm from the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York, just outside of Newburgh. I've grown various orchids since the mid 70's, but only gotten serious(addicted) over the last 10 years.

I live in Airdrie, Alberta, Canada which is 35 km north of Calgary. I look out from my back deck to the Rockies. I found this site looking for pictures of hybrids that I was interested in buying. I have been lurking for a while and will post pictures soon.

Ok,

Born and breed in Barcelona, North of Spain, for 24 years. Then decided to go to London, UK for a summer to polish up my English skills, as I wanted to do a translation and interpreting degree... Needles to say, after nearly 15 years living in London, the interpreting career has sort of gone out of the window... Although not completely. I do work as an interpreter... Sign Language interpreter, though!

Born and raised in Tampa, Florida. Seventeen years ago we moved to Minnesota and love it. Moving from hot, steamy Florida to cool, low humidity Minnesota was quite a shock on the system. We moved in January. :o

Currently I reside in St. Louis Missouri. Previously I've resided in Texas and California and Kansas. I guess you could say I was a semi military brat. My father worked as a public consultant for the government so we moved constantly.
