    Default eikon and Diane go orchid shopping

    Jeff (aka eikon) was nice enough to invite me along to a sale that one of the members of his OS was having. We trekked down to Culver City and wandered around several small greenhouses and a large shade house.

    I ended up with 2 paphs and a great big cym with 5 spikes (to help replace my frozen ones), and he got a fabulous paph Armeni white, a bulbo, a kingianum and something else....

    Thanks for the good time, eikon!!

    Very neat that you found a cymb to replace the one you lost (my condolenses for the deceased). What paphs found their way home with you?

    Heh, it WON'T be your last. I added 65 or so to my collection this week. OK... about 60 of them are from two compots.
