    Default Orchid Auction, Orlando, Fl ~ September 20

    Hello,

    My orchid society (Greater Orlando Orchid Society) is having their annual auction where members bring in plants from their collections and auction them off. It is a lot of fun and I always manage to find a few (okay more than a few) that I can't live without. We always have a lot of fun and great deals I found some "oldies" last year which really tickled me. We have everything from Cattleyas to Vanda and species to hybrids. All orchid lovers invited!

    It is on a Tuesday night, September 20, 2011 at 6:45 p.m. to preview and the auction starts at 7:00 sharp. Cash or checks only. No cards. Beardall Senior Center, 800 South Delaney Avenue, Orlando, Fl (Downtown Orlando).

    Our society auction always gets such cool plants too. I look forward to seeing what you two come home with... errr, I mean what follows you home from the orchid auction! haha... My good friend, Gin, and I have such a great time at our society auction in Springdale, AR. It is held in September. I will be sure to post about it too. Most of the time Gin outbids me! haha... - most of the time.

    cheers,

    I promise not to develop a vanda obsession before the auction Cathy I don't have the room! I do have a few though. My friend is supposed to be bringing vandas for auction. She is a vanda expert like you and she has some gorgeous stuff.

    Bruce we may had to car pool over to Arkansas just to check out your auction. Look for the ladies with crazed looks in their eyes carrying cardboard boxes!
