    Cool FWCOS Orchid Safari; Annual Sale/Show

    I realized that October is almost here, which means it is time for the Florida West Coast Orchid Society Orchid Safari annual sale/show. Save up and mark these dates on the calendar; October 1st, Saturday the doors open at 10:00 a.m. (If you see a gimpy chick in a wheel chair taking tons and tons of pics...that's probably me. I'll be there when the doors open!) They close down at 5 p.m. on Saturday. Sunday they open back up at 10:00 a.m. and close down at 4:00 p.m. If you want your pick of the nicest plants show up early. Vendors keep plants back for Sunday morning. So either day is a good day to show up early. I look forward to seeing some of you there. If you want to see what a sale looks like, check out the previous years' show. http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...show-sale.html And another years show....http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...show-sale.html

    Alas! Way too far for me. If you find a nice Ctna Maui Maid 'Lea' X 'December Bride' (a very nice pure white minicatt that has a nice fragrance to boot) you can snag if for me though.

    Those of us who live in the wide expanse of orchid wasteland thank you for sharing glimpses of such heavenly vistas.

    "If you see a gimpy chick in a wheel chair taking tons and tons of pics...that's probably me".

    Thats funny!!!!!! Will the gimpy chick also look like a mobile moving garden by the end of the day?. You could attach a trailer cart and install a horn to clear the way. Good way to get first choice!

    You should have seen the day I went to the flea market with Rich. lol I had a six-seven foot vanda I was holding up and a huge miltassia with spikes whacking me in the nose...and I was zooming to the car. It was hard to see...i'm sure I looked like a moving plant stand. I need an attachment off the back of my chair to hang plants from! Oh, and I actually have a horn already. meep meep!
