This post is dedicated to Tog of Coral Gables for 2 reasons:
1. He keeps me on my toes. Every so often he emails me privately and basically points out "YOU IGNORANT GIRL, YOU GOT THE WRONG PLANT NAME AGAIN", but in a very nice way ;-)
I've lived in SW Florida for only a few years and am still learning about its fauna and flora, so his guidance is very appreciated.
2. He saved the life of the orchid above. Last year, after it bloomed and reverted to its dead stick stage, Tog advised me to tie it up to a tree and forget it. Well, guess what - six months later the orchid is on my patio, happy and thankful for a second chance...
And this showy Spider Lily is blooming in my garden...at least I think it's a Spider Lily. Tog?
