    Jeff, do I hear a note of complaint that the beautiful flowers aren't as nice this year over last.... well, do I... OK good glad we have that out of the way. Now, on Monday morning you put that puppy in a big box and send it over here where it will get the appreciation it deserves!

    Well she took top honors at the meeting. Not only first place in the Cattleya division but the Abbott Award as well. (That's my society's Best In Show) I had 7 plants in 5 divisions and brought home 4 first place ribbons and a 3rd. Not a bad haul.
