Who can resist such beauty? Just don't cut off the flower stalk!

Same as you! I'd have bought 'em too. I have one, it's yellow, don't know the name of it. I've had it for five years, figured out how to take care of it and get it to rebloom after 3. Now that I know how to get them bloom, I'm ready to add a few more. Who could resist at that price!

Oh my Gosh, I would have had to have them all. Those buds were talking to you weren't they?

You only took three? My goodness - you are disciplined.

They look gorgeous Kylee. Impressive close-ups as well.

Bought a few more and then have to make do with eating only dry bread for a week or so. ;-)

Yes, me too...who needs to pay the phone bill, fuel bill, groceries, etc, when such beauties are to be had.
Seriously though, nice scores...exquisite colours and each one so different. Bet you might have to go back and check for more interesting bargains...;-)

Oh so gorgeous, and well worth the cost!

When I had my greenhouse raising orchids back in the early 80's, I never paid less than $50 a plant. Orchids I wanted then, were not in mass production mode.

I have always given Orchids, since 7th grade to the present,to those I care for.

If I had a greenhouse now, I would not have passed on the price.

Very pretty.

What beauties! In the window shot, the blooms look like part of a stained glass pattern. Gorgeous colors.

Great choices!

Hey... it's been a long winter, and a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do! *grin*

(And that total for all three is a great deal.)
