    That is great to know that people can find them to get the enjoyment of them and that you are reaching the search pages.

    That is why I am happy to see any search engine fossicking around APG, Dawn. Googlebot is here frequently as are Yahoo & Bing. There are French & Chinese search engines bots, too. Microsoft & Amazon bots also come & poke around. The more the merrier. :lol2:

    Don't worry, I check them out just to make sure they aren't spammers. :whistle:

    Gosh I did not realise that there are all kinds of Bots around I think I have only seen the google one down here where the on line status is!

    No not worried Joy I know it is safe on here, but thanks for the vigilence! But I am astounded at the things people do for spam. No one takes any notice of spam so why do they even bother I have always wondered. I delete any spam in my box on Gmail with out even looking at it!

    That is the safest thing to do, Dawn, as sometimes this "spam" has other purposes, such as infecting your computer with as sorts of trojan nasties. Some of these spammers are harvesters who come on to a forum to try & get members' email addresses. That is how we get targeted. On APG the memberlist is available only to members. Might even find out if there is a way of making it available to members who have posted at least twice.

    There is always some pathetic sucker who is after "cheap" xxxxxx or "Rolexes". :whistle:

    Yes I have noticed lots of spam come into my gmail spam box for discount watches and "Rolexes" It says so on the introductory line without even opening it it all goes down the delete forever shute unopened. What a total waste of their time.

    Same here, Dawn. :D We also get some for other "services" that I, as a female, physically do not require. :whistle: :rofl:

    I see in my above post that our inbuilt censor is working. See the xxxxxx?? That is the propriety name for the little blue pill so beloved by some men. :lol2:

    I hope so Joy! I haven't looked at the photo I took yesterday evening yet, they too only last a short time there are quite a few wilted looking orchids on there, but I left them to show how full it is starting to look. There are a lot of buds too. Also when you walk in there the lovely scent blows you away .

    Yes they have a lovely smell but I only noticed that once I put them in the shade house, when I had them on the patio they never did seem to smell, maybe it is because the breeze or open air sort of took it away?? I really need to put them in pots they are still in there grow bags

    :donald: They appear to be perfectly happy in the grow bags, Dawn :whistle:

    Do think the wind can make a difference with such smells. Have noticed this with our Brazilian Walking irises.

    Thanks Joy! It is too full now. I think if I rearrange the plants a bit better it might not be so full looking

    :lol2: When I look at pics of our back patio from even just a year ago, I am astounded at just how much room there was compared to right now. It is not as if I have bought any more plants, either. Well, not many, anyway :whistle: & I guess the Brazilian Walking irises have had a big population increase, as well, haven't they?? :rofl:

    I can imagine Joy! it is probably because they have all flourished so well. Yes the BWI's creep outwards and increased. We shall have to give them the pet name of rabbit plant

    Then there are the aechmea fasciata "Primera" & the graptoveria, the echeveria, the mandevillas, the dracaena deremensis "Warneckii", etc, etc, who all seem intent on taking up every square cm of our back patio. :lol!:
