    I got into orchids coz their blooms lasts for weeks. They're worth the trouble.
    What is the best way to care for orchids? i.e. what's the best way to get them to bloom?

    Watering frequency? Feeding? etc

    What's better than roses on a piano?

    Two lips on my lizard. Scratch that. I meant tulips on my organ.

    This was taken about two weeks ago. I put him by the hostas along the club house. Better cover there. I was in the process of mowing my arm and didn't want to see him get hurt.

    What, you never saw a hairy fish?

    Cute little guy.

    Okay, I'll level with you. I'm not sure if he's a boy or a girl. I couldn't tell and was too embarrassed to ask. No, I wasn't drinking and yes, I had to let Sally go.

    Gotta run it's been fun. Busy day today. Peace out,fish.

    Orchids are sun lovers. They like at least 6 hours of sunlight. If they are potted, do not water them everyday as it will cause rotting in the roots. If they are mounted on driftwoods, watering them twice a week is sufficient. Be careful with using fertilizers. You do not want them to have too many roots. I usually use
    15-30-15 fertilizers to make them bloom.
    I am so unlucky that if I fall into a barrel full of D*ick**s, I'd come out sucking my own thumb!

    Not many flowers in the garden of our rented place but just for you I went out in the rain and took some photos.Please ignore the grass (weeds) that needs cutting.





    We do have some good fruit trees lots of limes and mangoes coming along nicely.





    Also have at least one of these, Pit Viper, to eat the frogs.

    Yep fish snakes eat frogs have a closer look at the Pic and you will see it has a bloated bit in the middle not a beer belly but full of (probably) frogs.

    Snakes can eat birds and birds can eat snakes, natures way. Some birds also eat frogs but frogs dont eat birds.

    Big snakes like Pythons (2 species in TL) can eat big animals, have even been known to kill people but few if any true records of them eating people.

    Watch a Python Devour, Then Regurgitate, an Antelope

    But this is supposed to be about flowers, note cauliflower ears and genital warts dont count.

    I've been wanting to set up a bit of a herb garden, but the amount of info out there is too much for me to take in.

    I know what I would like but have no idea how to go about it.

    Chilli and lime plants I guess I can just buy ready grown and keep watering them. And I'm told that Thai basil is almost like a weed, it's so easy to grow. But for Mediterranean herbs (rosemary, thyme, sage, mint, etc.) I wouldn't know where to start. Any advice would be much appreciated (for any of the plants I've mentioned, or for any plants at all really).

    We have a ground floor place with large concrete courtyard. Because of its position (building behind, wall in front) it probably doesn't get much direct sunlight. It's also not shaded so in rainy season would get the full brunt of the rain.

    Herbs can tolerate minimal sun. Mediterranean herbs are very easy to grow and are fast growers as well, so you can start them from seeds. They are fairly easy to maintain. Do not be surprised if you find the herb stems leaning-over or facing downwards after the rain. They usually look like that after it rains, but should recover quickly when the rainwater in the leaves have dried off.

    I have a v small herb garden with Thai Basil, Mint, Lemon Balm and Thyme. I also have a plant or two of a few chili varieties, just to break down the monotony. Limes are great to have around, but they need a bit more sun than the herbs.

    Good luck with your garden YMNSTT. I find it very rewarding. I hope you do too.

    The rains of the last couple of months have decimated what flowers we have/had, albeit M'Sahib plants for leaf colour and form rather than strictly flowers. Anyway, a wander around the garden a few minutes ago got these:

    Many thanks. I've not worked out how to "green" yet, so I'll have to do an old school analogue thanks.
