    Default Now Appearing ~Phals

    This is the season for phals and mine are just getting started... I think the cool temps in the G/H have caused things to be a bit later this year... None of these are in full bloom but I wanted to catch the rich color before they begin to fade, since things are soooo slow!!! Of course, I do have a disclaimer as most of you can appreciate.... I won't guarantee any of the names but what you see is what is on the tag!


    These two, along with two or three others were purchased a couple of years ago while I was visiting family in Florida. All of them had the same name tags!











    This is one of the first 6 chids with which I started several years ago....

    GR's usually a very good show. If I hadn't had prior obligations, I would have gone and "forced" you to come along. No telling what new chids you might have come back with. LOL

    Rob will also be at the Lansing show at the end of February.

    I think my favorites are the first two. I don't usually have much luck with phals. Did pick up a couple at local stores. Had bud drop because it was the middle of winter, but new buds are coming and branching.

    Orchid show here in Amherst MA is Feb 20/21. It's usually a good show. I miss the NY show. Understand it's coming back year after next.
