    Wow! You're plants look great. What a great job! You have displayed them so nicely too, very professional. I love that red paph. I hope you do take it to AOS for judging.

    Well done
    I do so hope you go on Saturday, Jason. Even if it's a little unnerving at first, you'll meet some great, interesting people, get as much input as you want on your own plants, and then the next time, you'll be an old hand! I'll be thinking of you on Saturday, since I'll be attending my first American Orchid Society Judging Session and quaking in my shoes about my little burgundy paphiopedilum.

    Best to you,

    You know what........ I think i will go.
    The one thing putting me off was my lack of knowledge (dont like not knowing the answer) and then that little predicament when you think you need to say yes and you reply with no just so you dont look daft and end up doing anyway haha.
    Well the more i put it off the less chance of ever going so I will attend and get all the formallities out of the way and then next time maybe i will have the courage to take an orchid or two with me.
    Best of luck at the AOS Judging session i will be rooting for you but from what ive seen of your orchids i think it will be the other attendees that need the luck.
