    Default Christmas Orchid Spree

    Hi y'all -

    These are a few photos I took - very quickly - with my trusty old Canon Powershot point-and-shoot - of my big Christmas present - a road trip to an orchid nursery. Talk about fun! I wanted one of everything. I'm not trying to caption the individual flowers, for the most part, since my mind was overloaded with info at the time and I can't recollect the names of everything I saw. The fuchsia Ascocenda (I think that's what they called it) has won an FCC at some point - I really couldn't capture its magnificence.

    Hi Jonada -

    I brought home TEN orchids (yikes!), most of which I've posted in the past 4 or 5 days - 7 phrags, 2 paphs, and an unregistered Catt. hybrid. I only posted the ones in bloom, but I'll post the other 3 or 4 soon. I'll pm you.

    Maura spoiled my fun! I was going to make a comment (jokingly) about Phillip having bought all of those plants in the first photos for her as her Xmas present. heh (Would have gone well with the title of her post. )
