    Well, it is that time of year again. Orchid Quest will be in Madison, Wisconsin on Feb. 4th and 5th. I went last year and they had some really decent orchids there. Also some beautiful displays. So, who's coming with me????

    Hello,

    Can you tell me if there are any shows coming to balmy Milwaukee? I'm less than an hour away.

    I did a quick search and found Wisconsin Orchid Society, Sept 15 and 16 2012, Mitchell Park Conservatory.

    I am almost afraid to post this. I may be skipping the orchid show.......and getting a greenhouse instead!!!! Found one that is used near us at a reasonable price. Now I will just have to start looking for all the other stuff that goes hand in hand with it. So hoping this happens. I hate to miss the show, but......

    I hate missing a show too, but I am in love with the plants that I got as a consolation prize! Hope ya get the greenhouse! Aside from funds raised by societies, the shows are a shopping experience for me and having trusted online vendors takes care of my need when plans don't come to be.

    Alas, too far away for me. But there will be a show at the end of February I will be attending, so not too long a wait.
