    Default Two More Orchid Society Ribbons!

    Haven't had a chance to go to my local Orchid Society here in Atlanta since last September for one reason or another, but Phillip and I went this past Monday with 4 of my orchids in bloom - and lo and behold - 2 of them won ribbons!

    My Paph. Bel Royal (kolopakingii x rothschildianum) won a First and my Phrag Peruflora's Spirit (Phrag. Eric Young x Phrag kovachii) took a Second. The Bel Royal was at its peak, but the poor kovachii hybrid was on its 4th and last bloom and it's so big a plant that Phillip and I thought we were going to knock that poor bloom off getting it in and out of the car. As it was, it was pretty beat-up by the time it made it to the judging table.

    Anyway, after winning the ribbons, I was persona non grata - the jealousy and insecurity of the older members was palpable. We'll think long and hard about going back. It's a shame, really, but I won't let it stop me from loving my orchids and growing them the best I can.
