    Sweet plants! LOVE the Encyclia vitellinum! (Your id skills are quite correct, Geoff).

    Beautiful green flowered cym. Love all the color and flower shapes one gets to see at shows!

    Wonderfully grown masdie!

    I LOVE Cochlioda rosea! Alas! It is a cool grower and so I know I will not be able to grow it. (Saw one last year at a show by me. Was SO disappointed to discover its temperature requirements. )

    *sigh* Love odonts and milts but their tall spikes and cool temp requirements pretty much make them "look & admire but don't buy" plants for me.

    That is a very interersting color on the Cyrtochilum. Not a shade often seen, IME. Interesting Masdie species too.

    The last one is WONDERFUL! (Though I, too, am drawing a blank on its name -- and I know I've seen the name before.)

    Thanks for the pictures Geoff.

    Great show. Love the cymbidiums and the Cyrtochilum. What an intense red phrag.

    Again thanks Geof for the superb pictures.

    It was one of the Chinese names -three short words - I didn't bother to note it down saying to myself - oh yes I know that - I've got a plant.... now I can't recall it !

    I'll send you a pm about this.

    You are right - but it was often thus in my whole life ; obviously I was an exception, since I started growing when a mere lad in my 20's, and when Secretary of my first orchid society I think there were just two of us of my sort of age on the Committee, and not a lot of members at meetings of similar age out of the 100 or so present, all the rest were 50+.
    A matter of available time and money to some extent I think . The demands of mortgage and kids, both financially and in time occupied may not leave a lot of time for hobbies of any sort , but as the fledglings leave the nest etc., time expands, and hey , you have a few coins to jingle for the first time... and so on.

    The last photo is not Coelogyne cristata. It most likely is Coel. Unchainted Melody.
