    Default Margarita and Connie go to the greenhouse

    I was very excited to meet a fellow member of OrchidTalk today. She is up from the Ft. Lauderdale area and we met up and went to one of my favorite greenhouses. Hopefully when she gets a chance she'll add her pictures to mine of her haul. I have always wanted a chance to meet someone from our website...today was so much fun! For once I had someone to talk with that is just as orchid crazy as I am. And my greenhouse friend met a fellow flasker, and sent Margarita home with some supplies and advice on flasking.

    First; a picture of the first greenhouse. The second one pretty much looks the same as this one....

    it sure looked like fun!
    when i saw the first pix of the greenhouse, i thought it was something like the "before and after" thing, and im surprised you guys left some plants behind, especially margarita with her wishlist, lol.

    @connie,
    this purple catt looks very similiar to mine i posted the other day, what you think?
