    Default Some bright and bold Masdevallias

    Well, on Saturday, the annual orchid fair kicked off, and i was a bit in the dumps-my ride rang the night before to say he would definitly buy something if he went, and he didnt have any room left in the greenhouse lol. So i whinged to my grandmother who said 'Where is it then?' so i told her and her reply was "Will you pay for petrol money?" so i was like YESSS!!!! and then my mum decided to come too lol

    At the fair, i spotted my good friend Ron Maunder (He created the genus Ronmaunderara), who specialises in Masdevallias and some Odonts. This is part of his display-sorry, i didnt write down names, and my camera ran its batteries flat.

    Masdevallias and I don't do so well. The first one I tried didn't make it.....maybe when I'm a bit more experienced with orchids period I will give another one a shot. Til then, I am satisfied to look at everyone's photos! Thanks for sharing, Jordan
