    My AOS award for my Miltassia that was awarded LAST year. It's in AQPlus without a photo (If any of y'all remember, the photographer who messed up the photo also tried to kill my orchids when I left them with her while I was away last October.) The delay was due to her not sending the photo in until this February - I saw it in our local newsletter and it was so wrong, I guess they tossed it completely. Oh, well.




    Here's a photo of my Miltassia Royal Robe 'Abby's Wonder', HCC/AOS:

    It's still recuperating at a friend''s greenhouse in Pennsylvania, but it should be due to bloom pretty soon.

    Thank you so much, everyone - I am immensely grateful for all the support you've given me along this rather difficult and frustrating road. The AOS had actually decided not to give out certificate any more at all when I emailed their HQ wondering what was going on. Shortly thereafter I heard from the powers that be that they were in the process of collecting all the certificateless awards and sending out the certificates that should have been sent months ago. Apparently, the AOS is hurting after its move, both financially and infrastructure-wise. Has anyone been to the new site at Coral Gables, FL?
