We are back from our two week vacation in Florida. Had a great time and the weather was perfect. While there I was able to attend the Tamiami Orchid Show and Sale. What a fantastic show. There were not as many exhibits as I expected but what were there were beautiful with exceptional orchids on display. There were lots of vendors with top quality orchids which i will share in a separate post. The pics in this post is just of the exhibits.
Lovely flowers. Makes me look forward to the show I'l be attending at the end of the month.
HOW CAN YOU COME HOME EMPTY_HANDED????
I've been waiting for these pictures! Gorgeous!
I could not believe the number of vendors and the quality of the orchids they offered for sale. I am still in shock over the prices. They were almost giving them away! Phals in bloom from $10 to $40. The $40 ones were two and three plants to a pot and each plant multi-spiked. Blooming size catts in pots started at $8.00. Many of the vendors offered discounts if you bought two or more plants. I left with 13 orchids--several that I have been searching for for a long time. Best part is I got them for way under the budget I had set for myself. My purchases averaged out at around $10 each. I will post pics of them later.
