    Wow, looks like you guys had a great time. I went to our local nursery and all I brought home was a Bulb. echinolabium. It is in bud and going to open soon assuming it doesn't blast. I go to a nursery filled with lovely smelling orchids and I bring home a big stinker!!

    Thanks ladies for the beautiful pics and thank you even more for not giving names. Not knowing the names keeps my wallet closed---for now. Would love some names and addresses of these orchid nurseries since I will be in your area in January. Thanks again for a beuatiful visual trip. The orchids are beautiful and so are you gals!!

    Bill; Just remember when in Florida you should do as the Floridian's do. That means you will open that wallet of yours...............wide. Beware of large orchid blooms.................it will cost you! After your first tour of the orchid nurseries, only go out at night...................when those same nurseries are closed. Last remember that sun screen was made for people.................not the plants. AL
