When the snow melted and I assessed our backyard, I noticed our flowering pear tree had a "break" in its trunk from the fork of a main 'trunk'? 'branch'? I thought that when Spring arrived, I'd likely have to get something to 'seal' the fissure. This was 2 weeks ago.

I love plants - always have, always will. Growing up I had a room full of houseplants, but funny, no flowering plants. I started getting into orchids about two years ago and have posted several times about the orchids Mr. Olive has given me and others I've bought. I'm a total beginner and need to hone my skills in caring for them so I can get flowers. My little collection makes me happy, but seeing the Orchid Show at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, is a huge treat for me. I'm lucky to have a college-friend live in that town so twice now, we've packed up the car and headed to the Orchid Show and tie in a great visit-weekend. The show is put on with different orchid societies putting together its display and then the orchids are judged. I wanted to share some pictures of the gorgeous flowers.
