    Default Woo-hoo! Ribbons won at Orchid Meeting

    Just got back from our Orchid society meeting. I took 5 orchids for the "show table," and 3 got ribbons.

    My Eplc Butterfly Kisses 'Mendenhall' AM/AOS (the orange one I posted recently) got a blue in its category, the minature Onc. Twinkle 'Snow' a white in its, and the miniature Dendrochilium gracile a "species of the month" award.

    The moral of this story is to bring plants to your meeting on a weekend when the best growers in the society are at an out-of-town Orchid Show. Nevertheless, I am pleased!

    Congrats Kathi. You are too modest. Those plants were really good and deserved to win!
