We went to Nashua, NH to the NHOS show today. The morning was low key so I could take pictures. Such wonderful displays with lots of gems. It was the 20th anniversary of the show!

And here are some of the vendors I bought orchids from. Turned out I had my buying shoes on again. These vendors are hard workers during the show season!! They told me Friday was their busiest day. Kudos to all of them. We need them!

Glen Decker of Piping Rock Orchids. Fast breaking news is that he is about to release a brand new website!! So keep checking! http://www.pipingrockorchids.com/

The kovachiis...I finally broke down and bought one. Can you guess which?

J & L Orchids were there. Hurray! http://www.jlorchids.com/
Here is Lucinda Winn, one of the three owners. She commented when she noticed me, "I don't usually see people holding on to a scaphosepalum!" These ladies were at the Deepcut Show and will be at the Amherst Orchid Society Show in Northampton, MA at the end of the month. And before that, they had their open house that I posted about. Love their minis!!

Brennans, all the way from VA! http://www.brennansorchids.com/index.html
This is where all those cool Australian dendrobiums come from. I got my Laelia lundii x Epi. longipetalum, Dendrobium Zoom, and a pink Sarcochilus Elizabeth 'Red Delight' from them in the past. They make unusual hybrids!

I also met this nice lady who was a student judge at the show. With her great dog, such a sweetie! I invited her to join us. Hope she does.

Oh and there were tour guides! Even though these aren't my best pics, I just loved how animated the tour guy was.
