    Heartiest Congratulations Maura.
    I have never received the HCC/AOS but I know the pride I felt when I received my first AM/AOS. Enjoy the moment. Well deserved.
    Sincerely

    Angela - I'm hoping if I can keep this plant alive, the next blooming will bump it up from an HCC to an AM. Good for you to win that! What plant won? Did you get to give it a name?

    Maura - I got the Award at The Barbados Orch. Soc. 2009 Show which was AOS Judged.
    The plant was Den. Watthana Gold. Received 85 points. An Award of Merit.
    Three arching inflorescences with 33 flowers and twenty buds.
    Unfortunately in all the excitement that followed I did not get a great photo. The attached is the best I can show you.
    Yes I got to name it. It is now tagged Den. Watthana Gold 'Angela's Delight'.
    Parentage: Den. May Neil x Den. Madame Uraiwan
    Take good care of your plant, next time around it will bring you good results again.
    BTW never judge your own plants. I have learned that though you may think your plant does not seem good enough, it turns out the judges think differently.
    Keep up the good work.

    Did the judges tell you what needs to be different to get an AM?

    Maura, I, too, offer my most sincere congratulations. I know you have had quite a time lately, and I hope this in some small measure evens up the score. I wish you the best and thank you for sharing yourself with us.

    How kind of you, Patty, to write such a lovely note. Honestly, having my orchids has made life far more interesting and gratifying than it would have been otherwise - the awards are really icing on the cake, and the score is pretty close. I won't know if I'm cleared healthwise for six more months, although the worst is over and my last chemo treatment wrapped up the last 6 months of it today. A day at a time, you know, and I have a long list of things to be grateful for - you, for instance.

    Of course not - that would have made it too easy. Actually, they may well have, but I was in such a state of disbelief, I hardly heard anything after the announcement! First off, as I said, is to keep it alive - a challenge in and of itself!
