    Be careful...my first orchid show was lots of fun, but I brought home quite a few new plants.

    Kathi, I am limiting myself to three plants. I hope I can stop at that.

    Oh Joyce - in that case you had better go on bike and not bring along any credit cards or a check book, etc... (You know... orchid addiction hahaha )

    Hope you have a great time!! I can't wait to hear what jumps into your car when you are not looking!

    Cheers,
    BD

    You know BD...I am silently crying on the inside. That friend of mine that bought me the Joyce Hasegawa is the one that imposed the limit of 3 orchids and I am so intent on breaking that limit.

    Friend: "Bring your cell phone so I can help you pick which one to buy and which one to put back..."

    I'm already coming up with excuses like, "oh my cell phone fell in a puddle in one of the greenhouses and I couldn't consult with you so I had to get both."

    Sometimes, Joyce, you must remember - orchids need friends to keep them happy. AND if you get a yellow one, you must absolutly get a purple one -I mean, they compliment each other. That's the rule! Same goes for anything red or green, blue or orange, etc.... I mean, you wouldn't want your orchids to be lonely. (Why would they bloom if they were lonely??)

    Oh, and I 'heard' that there was some kind of focused EMP (electromagnetic pulse) near the show and it of course wiped out all cell phones in the surrounding area... but had little to no effect on the credit card processing machines as they were shielded by their proximity to the orchid plants.) Hope that helps... best I can do with short notice... heheheh

    All joking aside - have fun. I remember my first orchid show and it was a blast. I took so many photos too.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Tell your concerned friend that you have discovered that any orchids not sold at the show are 'sold south' (you know, like in Gone With The Wind, except with orchids) to big Box Stores to a fate worse than death and you are out to save as many as possible from this outrage. In this way you come home with a lot more orchids, a working cell phone, and your a saint. AL

    I was going to go Joyce but this weekend has turned out to be a pretty busy. Plus funds are a bit low these days and I don't trust myself with credit cards around orchids. Have fun!
