    Thumbs up Orchid gifts from an OrchidTalk member

    Rhyncholaeliocattleya Beverly Blietz 'Volcano Queen' and (Cym. Agrivaine x Cym. Sylvania) 'Rose Passion' were two recent gifts from Betty (espranch) and Andy (members of our forum). I met them while visiting my family for my dad's birthday. They drove to Tyler on a Saturday morning (even after a tornado knocked down trees on their property early that morning) to meet me, Louis, and my parents to give these orchids to me.

    It was really great to meet them. We talked for a few minutes, took a few photos and were on our way as it was a rushed weekend (one day) visit with my family in Texas. I was so happy to get to meet Betty and Andy in person. Anyway, here are a few photos to share.

    Hi Bruce, That was nice...to see the "Queen", and the "Princess" in their new home! I know that they will be well cared for, and make many beautiful flowers for you. It was so nice to meet all of you! Your friend, Betty

    Gosh Betty...if it wasn't so far from Montana I would drive down and get a couple presents too! I will admit they look good in their new home! Good photo of you and BD!

    You're so right Connie. I'll be at the 20th WOC in Singapore in November 2011. Wonder how many OTF members I'll meet there. It would be wonderful to see some of you there.
