    Don't cry Alana...the Jacksonville show is only 2 weeks away and if you haven't been before it's really really nice.

    Would love to see the Auction though myself if it weren't so far away.

    Ahh, if only it was the next Saturday, when I wouldn't be so busy (I was planning to go to D.C. that day anyways).

    I might still try to make it...finally there's an event that's not all the way across the world.

    Maryland Orchid Society show and sale is next weekend. Mar 12-14th.
    Southeast PA show and sale at Longwood Gardens in Kennet Square, PA is Mar 26-28th.
    None of those are across the world either.

    I know about the JOS one, marked on my calender in 'countdown' fashion Can't wait. One of the days it's held is the first day of spring, which also happens to be our, my husband and I that is, first anniversary. Lets just say I know what I am getting
    As for my husband, I'll have to make it up to him, as flowers aren't really his thing.
