    Default Orchid Show Seaside, Oregon

    This weekend I went to a show down in Seaside, OR. It was a long but beautiful drive down. It was complicated by getting stuck in traffic for 2 hours due to a tipped semi truck . Because of that, I had to rush to take photos and see the show/sales area before the show closed . The show was small, but had a good selection of plants.

    Catts







    Amazingly fragrance that hit you when you walked in the door




    A good dose of Paphs for Tim











    I was shocked to see 2 Paph helenae plants (for all intents and purposes that species is illegal in the U.S. )



    A happy group of Paphs. The 2nd helenae is at the lower left corner



    Phrags

    Amazing specimen size Phrag Grande



    For Phrag bessae lovers





    Bulbophyllum

    Caught a lady taking a sniff on this one-obviously not familiar with the "stinkers" .



    Fell in love with the graceful beauty of this bulbo

    Some more

    Cycnoches

    This one was so gorgeous, but difficult to get a good photo due to it hiding its treasure so well under the leaves





    Not many Phals ready yet, but here's one



    Miltonia



    Always wonderful Rhyncolaelia digbyana



    Really freaky looking close up of the lip and "mouth"



    Lovely Oncidium



    Dendrobium



    cymbidium



    Intergenerics

    Those are stunning, thanks you for taking us along with you, I cant pick a favourite they are all beautiful, such a shame about the traffic problems but I am really glad you made it before they closed.
