    Default Part of my visit with Angela.

    When I visited Angela in the middle of February I was overjoyed at the welcome Angela- in fact all the Bajans- gave us. She is such nice lady that my second visit was to her home. The first time we met was at the Barbadian Horticultural Show so the following pics. The following was from the show, I'm sorry but somehow I lost the names of the orchids.

















    Could only place six pics will put another 6 shortly,

    Hope you like,

    Ed

    Thanks so much, Ed! I keep threatening to go live with Angela, since she's one of my favorite people on OT (and Barbados doesn't sound half bad). I'm envious that you met her, but someday.... After all, I got to meet Carmen (tradceci) in Puerto Rico, see her orchids, AND go orchid shopping together. Wouldn't this be a wonderful world if we could visit one another more?

    Wow Ed and Angela! I am so jealous of the beauty displayed in the background. You two don't look half bad yourselves but those orchids are killing it! Orchid paradise indeed.

    Beautiful orchids, and a very nice exhibit. Surprised they let the exhibitors display they're pots openly... Wish we could do that in our show... Thank goodness for sheet mos \

    I'm so happy for you that you got to make this trip. I agree with Maura that it would be nice if we could see one another more often, but I'm glad we have this wonderful forum to share with each other.
