    Default Marie Selby Botanial Gardens Plant Show

    I guess I've slacked off in getting these online - I was so taken in with the Gardens, I only shot a few with my cellphone. Obviously, not all are orchids, but Phillip and I ended up cruising the vendor tents and asking a million questions. I still have yet to post my my other purchase (the Paph. Honey was one) - and they made it all the way home to Atlanta in the car - pretty much intact!

    Here are a couple of the goodies - and Phillip talking serious photography with another orchidist/photographer. I discovered the slippers and that was the end of me.

    Great shots, Maura. I'm sure Phillip must have drooled over that bonsai bourgainvillea.Thanks for the pictures.

    Thanks, Yew - Phillip drooled over just about all the bonsais, although that bougainvillea had me mesmerized. I'm going to start my own bonsai tree soon!
