I think you NE guys need to skip Logee's and take a roadtrip here and snap pics for the rest of us! ;)
A friend sent me this link and of course I'd love to see this.

Bronx NY - about a 4 hour drive ... seems like that would be more than a day trip, Robert. And while I'm open to making new friends - spending entire weekends in close company is a way to lose them. :)

Aren't there some New Yorkers among us who can make an event of this, though?

Couldn't handle Mike and Wes for that long, eh? Laugh.

My dear Robert - they're both wonderful people! but, as in any new friendship, you don't want to wear out your welcome.

A day trip, like a good scotch, is a beautiful thing ... the second day (or a second glass) to quickly to follow - well - absence does make the heart grow fonder. :)

We've all got lives - friends, family, work - our NE plant club - will be a lovely addition - but it doesn't have to compete with our current busy schedules - as with any new friendship or group; to develop a good one you shouldn't go to quick with it. Otherwise, we'll just burn out and the friendships won't be as successful. Right?

Hello there-

It' been a long while since I've posted- anyway I did go to the Orchid show and it was fantastic! Lots to take in. Here's one of my "screen saver" pictures. Enjoy!
