Poll results, orchids and pigeon  
Thanks for voting everyone. We had a great turn out for the poll on who you liked best based on just physical appearance. The results are HERE. The winner is SOLAN!

I am not surprised. I expected as much actually. I'm a little surprised he didn't get more votes. He got 4 votes. Davon was a close second with 3 votes. Not too surprised by that either. I'm glad I didn't vote for him now or he would have tied with Solan and then I'd have had to have made a tie breaker. I almost voted for him. I am surprised that Cope got one vote. I didn't think he'd get any because he is one of my ugly characters. I really expected Cope and Ophidius to come in with Zero. But Ophidius naturally did the worst. And here's what he has to say about that.

Don't feel too sorry for him. He's totally faking it. Crocodile tears...or in this case snake tears. He's very good at playing on people's sympathies. He likes to whine because it's so easy for him to get his way when he does that. But the doesn't mean or feel any of it. He has no shame so he'll do whatever it takes to get his way. If he has to cry for it, on go the water works.

So I will be posting one more poll for your fave based on personality. I don't often do polls. I'm not a fan of them, but I ask these questions about once every two years.

I know I have been posting a lot about my art and been neglecting everything else. So here is a post so you guys can catch up on what's been going on with my birds and plants.

My pretty kitchen window

What a lovely view I have to work with every morning. I do dishes here and feed birds from here. I have nepenthes hanging down and mostly orchids on the sill. My new little pidge comes and peeks in the window when I'm there and likes to poke the orchids. Right now everything is in spike. I will find out what colors some of these orchids are for the first time.

Mini orchid buds and pigeon

The orchid on the left will be dark pink. It's my first orchid. I will find out for the first time what the one on the right will be. My pidge likes to look in the window while I work at the kitchen sink.

What color will it be?

I wonder what color this orchid will be when it opens. It has a thick heavy pod unlike any of my others.


Pidge gets into everything and sometimes it's hard to work with her there. She pokes the orchids, and eats the food for the other birds while I fill up bowls. She drinks the water too and it a cute naughty nuisance.

Pidgy nibblers my finger

She'll nibble my finger if I point at her.

Amorphophalus and orchids

My other pretty window full of orchids and weird cool plants. My second year with my Amorphophallus konjacs. They are bigger than last year. I look forward to the year they make gross flowers. Valentine clings still up.

Nepnthes tank

Misting up the nepenthes tank. I can't wait to put the lowlanders back outside. My bical is huge and beautiful. I love its snake fangs. They are still celebrating Valentine's. I will slowly start taking down the decorations and put up the Spring stuff.

Stripy pinky orchids

kabuldur wanted to see my new orchid. Here it is. I love the color and pattern on this one.

That's all for now.

EDIT: The bluebirds have been going in and out of the box. I think they will nest again this year. I will have to make sure to take videos and pictures. Perhaps this year if they do I can finally film the fledging.

Pidge is so cute. How does her nibbling feel? Is it tickly like budgies are when they groom you?

That's a really pretty orchid. I love its colors.

Hum, I'm not sure. I'd have to go out and have her do it again. I guess it's like being gently grabbed by chopsticks over and over.
Thanks. That's one of the few I liked enough to buy out right instead of taking my chances on the discount plants.

That's cool that your bluebirds have come back. I hope you get to film them.

Your plants are looking good!

Poor Ophidius. No one thinks he's hot. Haha, love the pic!

Yes, I'm so glad to see them. I wonder if it's the same pair? I think it is.
Thanks. Everything is looking so nice right now. Can't wait for them all to open.
Hehe, well I think he may do better in the next poll. I know people love what a free spirit he is. Thanks.

He's quietly glad he won.

I had to lol at poor Ophidius. Just as well they were crocodile tears, or I would have felt bad!

Love your windowsill view. And it's set to become even prettier! Yeah, O do love your new orchid.

I love the one of Pidge nibbling your finger, too. (Love your purple watch, as well, hehe).
Des: Ophidius angrythagirion on February 25th, 2013 12:49 pm (UTC)
Hehe, yeah. Even he knew he didn't stand a chance.

I'm looking forward to everything opening so I can find out what colors they are and I can label them.

Thanks. There was a pink version of that watch too. Wish I had gotten it. But it wasn't as bright.
