Today's Flowers - African Violet Collections

LAST MONTH, I received a call from one of my good friends, Jean. She wants to know if I'd like to take some of her African Violets (AV) and a few orchids because they are going to finish the room where she kept her plants. You know me, I'm such a sucker for any plants especially an african violets and orchids!
Below is a picture of what Jean gave me; Cattleya, Miss Thailand Dendrobium and four African Violets! Yay! I can hardly wait to see these orchids and AV's bloom! I can't thank you enough, Jean!

This miniature AV also came from Jean ... she gave it to me last summer.

Close-up ... it's lovely and stunning, don't you agree? ;)

These are a few of my collections, some of my AV were still indoor when I took this photo and I should take a picture of my office, it's full of AV too! lol Noticed those top two pots? Jean told me how to propagate AV and this is my second year of propagating them.

These are how those two at the above photo looks like now after five months.
