    Default Oregon Orchid Society Show

    I have been somewhat remiss in going to shows this years, so decided I'd better remedy that and took a drive to Portland, OR to see the OOS show. It was a nice show with good weather and traffic, so enjoyed myself. Here are some of the lovely flowers I saw...

    This nice Pleione belongs to a friend and won a CHM/AOS


    Masdies




    Paph. delenatii-always a favorite

    Some more

    Love the red "noses".




    Exquisite mini Dendrobium won an AM/AOS. Hard to photograph and doesn't do it justice.

    Stunning blue Catt.




    I was particularly captivated by a couple of weirdies.

    Epidendrum medusae


    And how cool is this one . Appropriately named Pleurothallis tarantula. Enough to give arachnophobes nightmares, but I think I migh have to track one down. According to its owner it is tolerant of warm and cool conditions and easy to grow.
