    Jason- I've taken a liking to all of the paphs I've seen you post pictures of thus far, especially that paph venustum.

    Thanks, all. I'll be sure to post some pictures.

    You go right ahead and buy whatever takes your fancy Joyce. You know deep down it makes perfect sense

    I went on Friday and had a very good time. Did you get to go yet? How many followed you home?

    I also went on Friday. Was good and only got 4 new plants (Not counting the one I'm getting Wednesday). But then again I have chance to get a few more in two weeks when a local grower has their open house/sale.

    Phew! I was overwhelmed at the show - lol. I got there and I felt like a little kid all giddy and excited! So many plants and so many in bloom for me to stare at! There was time for me to make one round before a lecture and I remember thinking to myself that I was going to have issues picking three plants out of all the varieties available. It was going to be a long day. Luckily, the Jersey shore was forgiving and the weather was just right.

    I managed to stick to my limit of three for myself... talk about being good. I did buy a 4th but it was a birthday present for a dear friend I was seeing over the weekend and she really wanted a phal so buying this 4th orchid satisfied that need to buy another plant, hahaha.

    I am in NYC for a few more days on business so I will post the pictures when I am back upstate. I had so much fun! One of the vendors made a comment saying that I spent way too much time picking a plant out. Whatever! There was this one lady that had one plant in each hand asking which one wanted to go home with her so I couldn't have been that bad....

    Pics later

    Congratulations, Joyce - I don't know how you managed to limit yourself! Can't wait to see the pictures. Have a safe trip home!

    Joyce you have much more will power than I do. Three for me usually ends up being six!

    Joyce to be that pleased and excited at being at this orchid show and coming away with just three for yourself is really quite remarkable. You did a very important thing; you kept a promise to yourself. I am sure these purchases are special plants and I look to see your photos here soon. AL

    ...so I've been up since 4:45AM, got to the NY office at 8:30AM, answered about 30 emails from traders and dealt with my offshore folks in India today. I think it's time for me to have a little fun and visit the store that was mentioned on another thread on 28th street between 6th and 7th Avenue. Ehem, just window shopping.

    Patty - I don't know either. Probably lots of inner monologues that went something like "No, you don't want that. You can't grow that, you're still a noob!"

    Jason- "I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. Oh no I can't...just one more =P"

    AL - I did bring my dslr along with me but I felt so sheepish after staring at the plants for so long that I did not go back and get the camera. Most of my pics are just simple ones from my camera phone so no fancy schmancy ones coming your way unfortunately.
