    Wow - it's so nice to be appreciated - now I have to work on staying (very) humble.

    Appreciated - are you kidding? We adore your photos and are so very grateful for what you share with us. Some of us live out in the desert (literally!) where there are no orchid shows, vendors, or conservatories. Your gifts are more precious than you can imagine. Thank you, Maura, for being here and sharing with us.

    Default More photos from the Atlanta Orchid Conservatory

    Here are somoe more from my collection of photos from the Conservatory. I try to keep track of what I have already posted, so forgive me if I duplicate anything. I'm going to an orchid nursery today! Will certainly come hoe with more orchids, but I'll bring my camera too.

    not sure, but I think it's some sort of cattleya hybrid

    I think that there was an id tag for this one that said that - they did have a lot of Laelias . Thanks for the id!
