    Wonderful pics. Was there any room for you in the car or did you both have to run along side?

    LOL I love the comments... No I didn't make Cathy run along side the car...after all i've got rails up top she could hang onto. I promise not to drive fast. lol We did go home with several plants each...but there was still room for one or two more. It did look like a nursery in there when we got done. I still have to edit my pics. I was pretty wiped out yesterday from all the fun. I'll try and get mine posted today. I bought two Aerides...one is a monster, an amazing nuns orchid that only had one spike but the flowers are large and amazing colors, a few cattleya, a very nice oncidium, one tolumnia and two glass vases for my house. Only three of my plants are in bloom, one cattleya, a tolumnia that is nearly done flowering and the nuns orchid.
    Again, thank you for the comments and i'm so glad you all enjoyed our tour. Next time I'll try to drool over plants less and take more pictures. I plan on going back after one of the bulbo. phalanopsis' plants very very soon.

    I am so envious! Such "gorgeous" weather for "orchid shopping", both unlikely in England.

    I'm originally from Michigan...so I totally understand having a lack of nice weather. I've been mistaken for a Nordic person I used to be so pale! lol We had a rare day for certain. It could have been raining though...I doubt we would have noticed. It's alway nice to have someone to "talk orchid" with for an entire day.
