    One of the funniest things was...New 500.00 camera and I ended up using my Iphone I couldn't figure the darn thing out.

    We each brought something to each other. Pat brought me a large division of C. Horace 'Maxima' AM/AOS. I brought her a C. Quinquecolor 'Prolific' divison.

    For someone who doesn't grow vanda types...HA! I wish you could have seen her car. I'm not going to say how many she bought. I'll let her tell you.

    I bought a V. Arabella Cummings. A few different Yip Sum Wah's and these were old divisions. A few Vanda species in particular merrillii (the red form) and a lamellata var. boxalli ‘Tom Ritter’

    Nice shopping trip! Looks like you found a nice greenhouse to rummage through. Isn't it mind boggling when you see all those plants and have to decide a select few to bring home?! Usually my other half is somewhere with an unpleasant look on his face holding a chair down. lol It helps to bring home less when he's along. Sort of like eating before going to the grocery store. lol If it weren't for him i'd own a nursery full already!

    Honest, Pat's husband had the patience of job. He rambled around by himself and in the end...bought a greenhouse and a species Phal for himself.
    He was great. We went and had lunch and he helped me with planning a new shadehouse.

    He bought a greenhouse?

    I wish I had been much closer to you all.
