I went to an orchid society gathering at Keith's yesterday. His greenhouse is three stories high. Here are some highlights.

Another member brought these. The Bulbo with the fringy things was sitting in a breeze and the fringes were bobbeling away!!
The Miltonia flowers were the largest I've seen!

I especially liked the food (Keith's wife is Thai and I adore here cooking!) and I had several in depth conversations with members which I loved.

Wow, what a beautiful tour. I can hear Apopka calling me. It starts softly and builds to a roar. If Lindsey comes down we'll have a ball.
