    ------------------------

    Actually had a pretty good day for the show-- it was chilly but sunny. Best one can really hope for this time of year in Michigan. Tried to get a few pics for everybody. (Some of the pics did not come out as well as I would have liked -- the show was held in a greenhouse and the light reflecting off some of the flowers was more than my lil digital could compensate for.)

    Starting with a few of the displays:












    Catt & vandas:

    This NOID surprised me -- looks like it has Rhyncholaelia digbyana in its lineage. This one and the one following, are the only hybrids I've seen thus far in which the digbyana lip seems to be coming through





    REALLY liked these next two















    Dendrobiums:





    This one is sooooooo cool IMO. Would love to try to cross it to bring the size of the plant down.



    Paph & Phrags:









    Personally I thought this one should be called "Miss Mantis" -- can you see the 'mantid' face with eyelashes?









    Misc













    Can you believe this 'scrawny' thing earned a first place ribbon?

    That was great...thanks! It's fun to see the shows from other areas. We don't get some of the slippers down here due to the heat.

    We could have met at the show. My wife and I got there about 11:30 and had to wait for a parking place. This is the first show I have ever attended so I was awe struck. It was hard to get near the vendor tables but I managed to bring some nice ones. The displays were wounderful. We shall return next year. I won't have to worry where I will put them when I get my greenhouse up. Or maybe I will??

    Awesome! Especially the peach catt with the red lip. And the orange vanda is stunning.

    Thanks for the photo tour. I love three of them and will look for them as soon as I finish typing here: Cnta Berverly Blush 'Kalapana' and Blc Jennifer Catherine. Do you know the name for the catt above Jennifer Catherine?
