    Default Fraser Valley Orchid Show - picture heavy

    The show was last weekend, here are some of the pictures I made.

    I only ended up buying one orchid (mastering self control by bringing my wife) Onc. Twinkle 'Red Fantasy' something I'd been looking for for a long time. It's in a 3" square pot and has 5 spikes.

    The big catt is the reserve champion, and the den is the champion. I've shown the picture with the blue tag and the purple/pink ribbon to show how blue it really was.

    Third batch

    That Queen was HUGE and 3 spikes!!

    I think someone went to town with the cinnamon on that bellina; didn't see it at the show when I was making the picture only after checking the pics at home I wondered what the brown stuff was.

    I'll upload a picture of mine when the blooms have opened. Probably take a few weeks or so.
