    I saw the same small group of kovachii hybrids. I wan't really impressed. I told my friends (who know nothing about orchids) about the kovachii and one of my friends said "Really, for that?" She thought the cattleyas were much more beautiful. lol.

    Yesterday afternoon I was able to meet a former student's husband to be. I was glad I did because he works for NBC and gave us a walking tour of the NBC studios. I was on Conan's set, the news sets, SNL (actually saw some of a rehearsal) and because my former student works as a tailor and dresser for SNL, I got a back stage tour of the costume shop, the quick change booths, and the storage areas.

    Following a wonderful dinner where I was introduced to a broadway director, writer, and actor (he is staring in LEGALLY BLONDE), I saw CURTAINS with David Hyde Pierce and Debra Monk. IT was awesome too! I fell into bed this morning around 1:00 am and am looking forward to today's activities.

    I am meeting another former student of mine for brunch. She is the Assistant National Director of Administration for Actors' Equity. She gave me a tour of Equity on Thursday and we had a few too many drinks on Thursday night, so today - no drinks! lol. We are going to see the 'Bodies' exhibit in the early afternoon today. Plus I will get to see the sea port area. (Okay, I will stop going on and on now. I am just feeling very lucky and excited and wanted to share it with folks here.)

    More updates to follow...

    Cheers,
    BD

    Sounds good BD - I saw Bodies a couple of years ago here in London. Some of it was amazing - but there were a couple of exhibits that I thought were just too gruesome. Glad I went though!

    Enjoy - it sounds like you are having a fab time.

    And congratulations on your purchases to everyone else!

    Well, I had to jump on and give a quick update. My former student who works for SNL pulled some strings and got my friend and I two tickets to SNL tonight!!! ehhehhehehehehee... more to follow...

    Cheers,
    BD

    BTW, Kerry, the bodies exhibit was amazing and gruesome. The circulatory systems exhibit was my favorite room. I am glad I was able to see it. I am gonna be sure to tell my friends who smoke about the lungs.... wow.

    Oh well, Qing, it sounds like Bruce did the right thing blowing us off for dinner last night, LOL!

    Plants and I arrived safely home, despite the scary bus, and I was thrilled to see one of my Psychopsis is opening! I'll try and get some photos posted tomorrow.

    For now, here's the show haul (not really a haul, but I shouldn't have been buying anything!)

    Lycaste aromatica
    Lycaste campbellii (a division of 'Green Mite', AM/AOS) These two species come from the deciduous side of the genus Lycaste - the yellow Lycastes. I only have two semi-deciduous, so I wanted to expand my horizons.

    Masd Red Baron (maculata x coccinea) The warm tolerant species just don't have the vibrant colors of the cooler growing, so you have to go to hybrids like this to get the color and warm tolerance.

    Den atroviolaceum, dwarf form (somebody recently posted about missing this at a show, and I thought I'd have to make up for that, LOL!) I love Latouria Dens and already have spectabile and alexandrae - this guy is smaller, but lovely flowers and will feel right at home! It's blooming, so pics to come.

    Sedirea japonica (considered by the Japanese to be a Fu-Ran in the category with Neofinetias), this has a Phal growth habit, but is actually related to Aerides. In fact, when it was split out, the genus was named by spelling Aerides backwards! It has a bud-laden spike.

    And then some blooming-size Catts:
    Catt labiata rubra
    Catt labiata semi-alba
    Laelia purpurata var coerulea (I already have var carnea, which I love. Var werkhauseri is the much more commonly seen blue variety. Var coerulea is quite rare for purpuratas, so I'm curious to see if it really is one, or if it's mistagged. The vendor was a reputable South American nursery, so here's hoping. I talked Qing into getting one also!)

    Works every time, eh? I'm going away for a couple of days in May and I expect to come back to some buds too *stamps foot*

    Sounds like an absolutely fantastic haul, Julie! I particularly like the sound of Sedirea japonica, Den atroviolaceum (I fell in love with one when someone posted a picture recently) and those Catts. I have a teeny tiny Laelia purpurata var carnea and considering pre-ordering a werkhauseri so I'd I'm curious about your coerulea too. Fingers crossed it's been labelled correctly.

    Now, get some rest and then post some pictures

    Default And now for the raw footage...

    Thanks, Elena! The Brazilian dealer on those Catts is a big name, and the fellow had no doubt it was a Laelia purpurata var coerulea, so I'm hoping! It has a strong new growth, and it's the right size, so with luck I'll have a first bloom early this summer.

    I've decided to go ahead an post some flowers tonight. I'm going to be pretty busy tomorrow. I have a lot, so it will take a couple of days to get them all up. Flowers first, people stories after...

    I do want to say I'm finding many of the labels (which I photographed) are either spelled incorrectly for lesser known species, or using not-currently-accepted names. That's a bit of a disappointment for a show of this stature. I'm correcting the names as I go.

    First off, we have Den eximium. It's a hairy species from the Denrobium Latouria section. Discovered in 1905, it was then lost again until the early 1980's. It's not frequently seen in cultivation. It likes high light, warm temps, and a well-draining medium, but does not like to dry out. It wants no winter rest.

    The third photo is what I'm terming Paph. Bel Royal (rothschildianum x kolopakingii). It was labeled "rothschildianum x topperii", topperi currently treated as the species kolo, and neither a variation nor a separate species. I'd allow personal opinion on its species status, if the cretin had spelled topperi correctly, but he/she didn't so thus I'm calling it Bel Royal!

    And fourth is Den anosmum. It was labeled superbum, which it frequently is. There were a number of huge specimin anosmum plants on display. The rasberry fragrance is very light. You have to sniff hard to catch it. At least I do...

    The first photo is a sea of Onc Alliance tranquility.

    Second, we have Dtps. Yu Pin Lady x Brother Success. This must be a very new harlequin cross, as Yu Pin Lady herself was only registered in 2003.

    Then we have Epi Joseph Girl x Pacific Glow, followed by a lovely display with two different Epi crosses, and some gorgeous yellow Masds.

    Masds coccinea and ignea, followed by a massive Catt skinneri and a Catt mossiae. There were a huge number of huge mossiae. This guy was representative, but I don't think the finest.

    Dtps. Yu Pin Lady x Brother Success is a wild phal! This is an example why harlequin isn't adequate now to describe these guys...there are too many new patterns I am starting to see. I wish I will get one cool like that too but they aren't really available yet (and probably cost a lot too) and I haven't seen any of these in person yet either. I couldn't find any of Sadie's Phal Ever-spring prince suggestions for sale. I see that Phal Ever-spring prince is called a harlequin picotee by some people. I wonder what the colouration of Dtps. Yu Pin Lady x Brother Success is called.

    Looks like a lovely show they are all beauties!
    Nice photos too thanks

    What magnificent flowers - I love the paph and the hairy den eximium at the beginning. The Dtps Yu Bin Lady x Brother Success is so nice, I really liked the Epi Joseph Girl x Pacific Glow, And the masds are just gorgeous.

    And these weren't even the ones you bought! Thanks for sharing the pictures.
