    Thanks for the reminder Carrie. I'd forgotten all about the show. I'll certainly make it tomorrow though

    Since Steve is going to the show tomorrow, maybe he'd be kind enough to try and get some of the names for us. Please!!

    Have a great time Steve. Carrie told me she really enjoyed it.

    Thank you everyone for the kind comments, I am so sorry i didnt get the names I know the haerella retrocalla as I have one these and am eagerly awaiting it flowering so had to get some pictures of her and the coelogyne ochreata ( spelling) and the tahoma glacier as I have one of these also yet to flower. I had such a great day at my first orchid show and it is lovely to be able to come home and share it with everyone here and get such lovely responses from everyone. The big white phals flowers were the size of my hand nearly it was beautiful it was a sogo but can remember the rest of the name. I am glad everyone liked my choice of plant to come home with me.

    Can't tell, Connie -- tag's too blurred for me too. I would guess perhaps some sort of Doritanopsis or cross therein.

    Wow some Disas too. Don't see those much at the shows here.

    LOL yes it is a very rich deep red and is sick! out of all the plants to choose at the show I go for one that has rust! i just fell for it when I saw it and didnt give it a proper looking over. I am sure I will sort something out, its such a shame I still love it and hope I can treat it succesfully.

    Sorry guys, didn't get any names for you. Didn't get many pics either. The hall was too dark IMO. I'll post the pics when I've brightened them up a bit !
