|Me, too, Carol. It was a beautiful sunny day today but tonight we are getting another 2-4" of snow!!|
Feb 26, 2011 10:17 PM CST
|Well, our "big storm" only dropped a little over 3/4 " of rain at my house, but the temps are down to 35 tonight with 56 for a high tomorrow. They are getting snow where there hasn't been any in 30 years though. We only have one (mountain?) in Orange county that is high enough to get a little snow in severe weather. I can see it out of my back door, if I want to see snow. If I get up on the freeway, I can see the San Bernardino mountains on a clear day. Beautiful to look at as long as it is two hours away.|
Anyway, I'm glad you made it, and got pics!

|Thanks, Carol. I often feel like I am tiptoeing through the snowflakes (and wishing it was the raindrops) between our snowstorms! Very strange weather everywhere! I wonder if nancy went to the Buffalo show today. Funny thing, when I talked to the Piping Rock sellers today, Glen Decker was in Buffalo.|

|Kathy, it looks like a beautiful Show. Thanks for posting! |
Does the smell sign belong to the Angraecum distichum? If so, my plant must be the only one with dud-blooms, although they are very cute. I think it was Laurel ( ?) who also mentioned the scent.

|Gosh, never thought to smell the 3 flowers mine came with! But I'm sure the smell me sign was for the dendrochilum in front (wish I could read the tag for the name).|
Feb 28, 2011 10:51 AM CST
|I see, thanks. The Dendrochilum makes sense, so many have a really nice scent.|
Feb 28, 2011 4:46 PM CST
|Wow, what a nice show! I see many for my wish list.|
