This three day show and sale began on the first of March. There were 6 or 7 vendors and I took a few pictures to share. The first picture is the display as you enter. The rest are of individual plants. The name tags are either included in the picture or immediately following it. Enjoy.

This last photo is of a little NOID Tolumnia I thought was cute.

I thought both of the Lycaste were outstanding.

Just fabulous of course, and nice pics Jim. Thanks.

btw, how the heck could you resist an Rlc. named "Hair Pig" ??

I've said it before, it must be lots of fun thinking up names for these orchids!

I agree Kathy. I would have bought it in a second if I could have found it. The search is on.

Ah, the quest for the Lycastes begins! We could syndicate a new TV series "Orchid Trek"

When's the next trip to Apopka, Jim?
