    Default Southern Ontario Orchid Show

    As I said in an earlier post the sales areas at this show were mayhem!! People pushing and shoving and yelling at vendors. I felt sorry for them. I screwed up with my pictures by forgetting the camera was still on while I walked around in the display area. Took some 800 pictures of not a whole heck of a lot and deleted them all because I was to lazy to sort them out.

    These are a few my wife took.

    Thanks Sheryl I'll tell her you said so There was one women in particular that I couldn't believe. She pushed me aside when I was looking at a plant. The vendor was behind the table dealing with a guy that had put in a pre order so she was busy and there were already 30-40 others there 1st. This women yells, Excuse Me! then louder Excuse Me!! I said "I think she's busy" She said "Doing what"! I said "Dealing with another customer" She said, "Well, whats he doing back there"! I gave up.

    I think that's why it only got a 3rd place ribbon.
