    I just got back. It was a hoot. I didnt take any pics cause I am a looser. I got a few new cool Bulbos and Pleuros. Mostly bareroot divisions. It was a good time and I would reccomend it to anyone.

    Forrest, don't be silly. You're not a loser!!

    I had a great time at the fair. I purchased 2 plants, a Mtssa. Shelob 'Tolkien' and a Beallara Tahoma Glacier 'Green.' I already have one of the latter, but I couldn't resist buying another one because it had 7 spikes!!!! The "Tolkien" had 8 spikes on it! Both were only $30 each, which I thought was a complete steal. Guess it paid to go on the last day of the show...lots of the plants were already marked down to 50% off.

    I have pictures, but forgot to bring the camera cord with me to my office to download them. I"ll post them tomorrow. All in all, it was a wonderful event, and I will look forward to going next year!

    Cool. I would love to see your pics. As it turned out I ended up being there both Saturday and Sunday. There was definatelty some deals to be had on Sunday, but I tend to like the odd species type stuff and it seems that stuff never goes on sale

    Maybe you saw me there. I was the guy with the brindle dog.

    Nice! Sounds like you made out like a bandit with your acquisitions.

    At long last, here are the pictures I promised! I apologize for the poor quality, but hopefully you get the idea! There were quite a few vendors there, so there were a great deal of plants looking to be adopted. I'll post a few pics of my new plants later this week.

    And Forrest, no I didn't see you! I was probably too busy staring at all the plants and trying to decide what to buy! Maybe you saw me...short girl in a big floppy straw hat? I'm in the right corner of the first picture.
