    I am always amazed at how people get the displays to look so perfect....which plants to group together, color arrangement, etc. You're arrangement is beautiful...nice job!

    Thank you all for your comments. The show was in a mall and they only allowed us to stage from 7PM to 12MN. Next day was judging all day, 20 plants nominated, 8 AOS awards, and the trip back home! Our exhibit was 3rd in our category, 6 ribbons, one trophy for best miniature (Trizeuxis falcata, you cant see it in the picture). I had 5 plants of my own, the rest is from other members.This is a pic of Trizeuxis falcata.
