    Carrie, I am so thrilled that you got to go.

    Please tell your hubby that his shots are just beautiful, and even without names, I'm delighted you posted them. I'd be so hard pressed to pick a favorite.

    That Asian theme in the display is so pretty. That's what I'd love to do in my orchidarium if I could figure out how, and how to care for them if I could pull off something like that.

    Thank you so much for allowing us to visit the show with you. And that one you brought home is such an amazing color!!

    The display theme is excellent... the japanese garden look reallylends itself to the beautiful orchids in the display! My favourite is the little Haraella retrocalla.

    and as for that dark dark coloured Colmanara.. all I can say is WOW!

    thanks for taking us to the show Anne.

    cheers

    Does anyone know what the orchid is with the tall purple spike of flowers?? I keep trying to read the tag in front of it...it's sitting in the group of Lycaste...I can read some of their tags, but not the amazing purple thing! What an amazing group of flowers!
