I was fairly active on this forum and others a few years ago, but got crazy-busy and lazy and stopped posting on the orchid forums. For those of you who don't remember me, I'm Ellen Covey, the owner of Olympic Orchids orchid nursery, a small growing operation just outside Lynnwood Washington. We've been in business for 7 years now, specializing in reasonably-priced miniatures, species seedlings, and a few hybrids that aren't available in stores, especially cattleya alliance. In addition to the orchid business, I'm also a member of the Northwest Orchid Society, a professor at the University of Washington, and the owner and perfumer of Olympic Orchids Artisan Perfumes, in business now for 3 years. Mostly, orchid growing is a long-time love and hobby, and I just realized today that I miss interacting with folks here. I look forward to participating as I can.
