    Talking Guess What I bought at the Saginaw Valley Orchid Show (setup)

    Paph fairrieanum...

    I think it was McJulie who was saying that this was a hard find. I was surprised that one of the vendors at the show had four to sell. Plus, she had an album form of fairrieanum. Well, I bought the standard form. One of my friends bought another. The other friend bought a standard and an album form. I took a picture of mine and the album that my other friend bought. Here they are.

    Wow, nice flowers! I think the typical Paph. fairrieanum has better form than the alba... Nice buy!

    Kevin, I don't know why this is coming up all blurry... you may have to send them to me so I can make an 'honest' comment on the beauty of your orchid!



    totally awesome purchases of beautiful flowers! Well Done!

    LOL. I think you should ship them to me since Tim is so far away. I will be more than happy to describe it to him.

    Nice haul!
    Cheers,

    But I could take a fantastic photo with my PROFESSIONAL camera and lenses to send to him. I would guarantee the images would not be fuzzy or I would just keep taking them and sending them until he was satisfied!!!

    Nicest one I have seen yet, even if it IS a little fuzzy. :O

    Humph! Fuzz...those are sharp photos of two lovely plants. I, too, like the regular colors more than the alba. Maybe because albas were so hot for a while, that's all anybody sold. Great colors on yours though, Steven!
