    Default The list grows a little bigger

    So, Julie (aka Piper) and I just left from an orchid gala that both of us were in awe of (honestly...wall to wall orchids...some even hard to find). It was overwhelming, blooming sized plants "priced to sell". The folks...who were very nice... who had the plants are moving, so unfortunatly that meant selling their impressive collection. Most folks there were NH Orchid Society members.

    Anyway, here's the loot (that I got...Julie I am sure will give you the run down). As my wife dictated a limited budget, this is what I walked away with.

    Epidendrum ilense
    Steils argentata
    Pleurothallis cardiothallus
    Masdevallia fulvescens

    <go figure on the Pleuros right?>

    and...the best part...

    the entire set (so far) of Icones Pleurothallidinarium

    It was, as I said more than weekend I am going to play clean-up

    But, once of the nicest touches was getting to hear Julie play the bag pipes, next to the ocean in the back yard of the seller's yard.
