Hi my name is Carol, and thanks for stopping by my site!
So who am I?
Well, let’s see… I’m a Mother of 3 and Grandmother of 6, who just celebrated 38 years of marriage with
my dear husband Bill. AND we’re recently retired to the little community of High Point just outside Brooksville, Florida (where we just love it)! When I’m not spending time with the grandkids, or playing around on the computer, I’m either out in the garden OR tending to what’s now become my biggest hobby (and passion)–caring for orchids!
So how did I get into orchids, exactly?
Well, I’d grown orchids off and on for a number of years, but only started to REALLY get into them now that we’re retired. And it was a chance encounter with another (much more famous) orchid maven that’s largely responsible for this site! Because last year, when we were visiting the kids back in Texas I had the pleasure of meeting orchid care expert and author, Ryan–whom most of us here know as “Ryan, The Orchid Guy.”
And it was my meeting with Ryan, who’s now also retired and pretty good on the computer, that really inspired me to put together this little website While I still consider myself to be somewhat of an “Orchid Newbie”, Ryan is one of those rare experts who really knows what he’s talking about… AND who’s very down-to-earth and generous in sharing his knowledge. Ryan’s got the best little series of FREE Orchid Email Tips — where he shares all these neat little tricks that he’s picked up over 30+ years of growing orchids (unique information, that I haven’t come across anywhere else) — all in a friendly, easy to understand, step-by-step style. You can sign up for his Free Orchid Care Email Tips, by clicking here. (If you can’t tell, I’m a real fan )
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the site — and please send along your orchid photos — and any questions about caring for your orchid babies (I’ll do my best to help!)
Warmest wishes from sunny Florida,
