    Default What a great day!!! And it isn't my B-Day yet!!

    My orchid society holiday party was today. We had lots of food and played 'Dirty Santa'. This is a game where everyone brings an orchid (orchid related) gift without names - other than male or female or either. We draw numbers and then open whatever gift we choose on the tables. Well, when my number was called, I got this really cool mounted Blc. I was happy.

    OF COURSE, someone stole it. --That is how the game works! BUT, that meant that I could get another package or take a gift that has already been opened by another member. AWESOME! - So, I snatched up a Blooming Size (two growth!!!)
    Paph. Umatilla (parishii x paph philippinense v. aureum 'Windy Hill')


    What a great day!! AND to top it off, my door prize was a
    Blc. Goldenzelle 'Lemon Chiffon' AM/AOS


    And I won the Society's Slipper Alliance Competition for total awarded points for the year - and got a great certificate to boot!

    It sure felt like it was my birthday today.

    Cheers,
    BD

    I'm sure you don't want to be greedy - just pack up that paph and send it on over for a nice California home.....


    Congrats!

    Thanks so much everyone! Tim, I knew you would love that paph! I will photograph them at some point. This week is final exam week, so I don't get home during the daylight hours. LOL!

    Cheers,
