    Default My First AOS award - Miltassia Royal Robe 'Abby's Wonder' HCC/AOS

    Hi Everyone - I posted something like this yesterday in the middle of the thread where I had asked a question about the plant, but (I hope BD will forgive the double-post) - it really belongs here because I want to share with as many members as I can what even a novice grower can do.

    Yesterday, September 10, 2011, was the American Orchid Society monthly judging event in Atlanta. There were 26 plants entered and 3 awards were granted. One of those 3 went to my Miltassia Royal Robe - it earned 78 points for an HCC/AOS! The other 2 went to entries by 2 of the judges themselves. Because this was the first AOS award to go to this particular Miltassia, I was asked to name it - a complete surprise to me. So... I named it after my daughter, Abigail, who is a junior pre-med at Columbia University in New York City. (And yes, I am incredibly proud of her!)

    Below are some photos of:

    The official AOS picture of 'Abby's Wonder' was taken by their photographer and will go into the Awards Quarterly database, along with the description shown on the Certificate. I'm not really sure what the "real" certificate and/or ribbon will be, or even if there is one, but I will certainly share whatever else comes along the way.

    I give great thanks to you, my fellow members, for expressing the interest, knowledge and enthusiasm in my novice orchid growing; without your support (and the boundless devotion of my husband, Phillip), I would not have had the confidence and hope that I needed even to consider entering one of my plants. And, of course, I hope that this will serve as encouragement to everyone that all the time and effort we put into our orchids may well be recognized by such an official institution as the American Orchid Society. Anything is possible!

    Gratefully,

    Maura
