    Hi guys,
    Just got into my car under pouring rain. We had a thunderstorm and kind a strong wind. Some orchids under show tent were blown over. It was no fun for shopping. Furthermore, it was even less fun for me because ATM at the Fruit and Spice park shut down just after my confirmation of withdrawal. We had to spend one hour waiting for an ATM guy and making phone calls. To make a long story short, I should get my money back within 48 hours. Should I add that weather became much worse while this waiting? LOL . I am sorry, I did not have chance to take pictures of vendor tents because of the weather. I just picked up my preordered plants.Good news, I took almost 300 pictures of show plants, so I have a lot to share with you my friends! I'll post them as soon as I can, hope to start tomorrow. It is five hours to drive home from here.

    Sorry to hear your trip was not as exciting as we all hoped . Drive careful! Bad weather is now about one hour north of Homestead. I start worry about my trip there Sunday . Can't wait for the pictures!

    Thank you Margo,
    My husband is driving, so I can play with my phone.
    It was not bad really ... We spent three wonderful days at Hawks Cay resort. I did enjoy the show. There were some interesting orchids, really! It was only one little disappointment after all!
    Don't worry about your trip, just don't forget to take a heavy duty umbrella!

    I love Redland show(actually it is not really a show...more like an event for orchid shopping). I would go every year if I live near by. Have fun, Natali.

    Oh, sorry that weather didn't play nice for the show.

    But, you will always remember this show from all other shows now. I am sure thatvyears from now, you and your husband would look back and laugh about it.

    Default Redlands Orchid Festival

    The Redlands Orchid Festival was very nice again, as usual. There were lots of vendors although I think there were more last year. Also I felt that the AOS tent was a little disappointing this year although they can only display the plants that people submit to be judged, so they don't have much control. The weather was an issue. The rainy season has started early this year. South Florida thunderstorms can be pretty dramatic. I went early on Friday and the weather was good until around 2:30 when a big storm rolled in. I didn't take many pictures but here are a few to give you an idea what it's like.
