    But I did not want to run the risk of being tempted to spend so much more money
    I spent about $40 and bought 5 orchids at the fair. Not too bad.

    What a show!! I went to the fair grounds first and the orchids were gorgeous and numerous. I took many pictures as they are cheaper than buy all the orchids that I wanted.
    I then went to the Santa Barbara estate and the whole place was amazing. I almost fell over with the overdose of orchids in such a short period of time.

    Hey Mike! How many of the orchids came home with you? Or did you escape with only photos?

    Well I did have a few stow-aways,I purchased, 2 Neofinetia falcata's, 4 Vanda's, 2 Cymbidium's, 1 Epidendrum, and misc. supply's. I really blew my budget but who cares, it just means a little overtime.
    Here are 2 pictures of the Neo's I purchased, the one with tag tag turned around is Neofinetia falcata 'Kinboshi'

    Mike, What day did you go on? I was going to take pictures but I was too overwhelmed. One of those vendors had all fragrant orchids. They smelled great. Next time, I'll bring more money.

    I went to the Nursery too. Did you get lost inside the green house maze. That place was enormous. I'm glad you took pictures because I didn't take enough.
