    Thanks for the wonderful show Connie... it really is like being to one... the variety and seeing ribbons here and there..

    It's really hard to choose a favourite now... I do like the colour of the pastel Dendrobium on the first post though..

    I bet it was difficult to go home with two Dends after seeing all these flowering plants... I gotta admit though, I now try and go to the sales tables first, and then go to the show so that I don't start adding to the wish list

    Also, for the pedantic like me, just a note on the two Paph primary hybrid pics, ie Paph appletonianum x wolterianum and the Paph hirsutissimum x moquettianum, the black labels have been criss crossed.

    Thanks again Connie, I really enjoyed this show. (also saved me from spending )


    cheers

    *sigh* Thanks for taking me along with the photos. Probably the only way I'll get to florida! Although with the promise of a show like that I might be convinced to visit someday.

    And to think....this is just a local show. Glad to see everyone's enjoying the pics as much as I did taking them.

    Thanks for sharing.

    That paph concolor has the most interesting shaped bloom.

    I am also looking for a psy. mariposa 'alba' or similar!
