    Would love to go but alas don't think I have enough bus fare to get there... let alone the airfare...

    Have a great time though Colin! Fingers crossed the people there are nice!

    Photos would be welcome, Colin! We all live vicariously off the pics from shows we can't attend!

    Admittedly, having someone else there to receive some of the fray would be good...

    Talking Great meeting

    had a very knowledgeable and entertaining guest speaker from a big greenhouse down south giving a great slide presentation and stories/history. lots of very pretty plants for judging as well, and i've got 55 pictures

    also, of course - i HAD to break down when i saw cheap psychopsis mendenhall's IN SPIKE and an interesting epidendrum and encyclia. very entertaining and informative meeting.

    Here are the pictures

    Nice pictures... your Mendenhall should bloom pretty soon. They are great. My Kahili is blooming again and the versteegianum whose spike I broke has branched in should have a bud soon. Psy's are great plants.

    Nice pics Colin.... I like the latourea dends very much... considering I use to think they are rather ugleee! SO this is a real turn around for me!

    Of course, third page is what won me over!!! Is that a Phrag Sedenii? And the two Paphs... oooh Paph liemianum... hmm... lots of pink... errr.... well that's ok, I'm in touch with my fenimine side...

    anyways, rambling... great to hear it was a great experience!
