Hey everyone -
It's been a while since I've had the luxury of posting on here. They are predicting a frost here, so I covered up the flytraps and younger plants.
Jeff - I wish I had a cap for MY truck. I put everything in large bins in the bed, and the taller stuff goes in the crammed cab.
I had some pretty bad Nep setbacks this year but my Heli heterodoxa nutans has two buds about to bloom. My N. Caesar has two nice pitchers on it. My hybrid creation flytraps are doing really well too. I'm pondering the thought of naming it "Dena's Dark Dreams" Whaddaya think?
Today I got to mention the NECPS show on WTIC am 1080's Saturday Garden Talk Show at noon. I was sooooo psyched since they haven't had too many shows lately due to UCONN sports and Red Sox broadcasts. They put me right on the air no problem. Hopefully it will draw more folks to the CP show.
The NECPS decided this year that members could sell at the show, so I'm thinking about bringing some seed grown Cephs, maybe a couple of Helis, and a Hummer's Giant or two. Also some VFTs, and assorted Sarrs. Matt, aka Quogue has some totally cool shirts he'll be bringing.
Dena got a great deal on Priceline tonight - the Hilton in downtown Providence.
OK, enough jabbering...... here are some pics from last year's show:

Members Only Silent Auction - for the REALLY GOOD STUFF:
That's all the pics I have from last year.
Can't wait to see everyone again, meet new CP'rs, and check out all the fabulous plants.
Hi Bill! Nice to see you around again. I'm sad to report that after three years of faithful service, the Ceph I got from you in the 2005 auction bit the dust after it started showing stress and I tried an emergency transplant. But I still have your growing guide, and I'm determined to be more aggressive with my next try.
I sure wish I could go visit the show sometime, but cross-country airfare definitely isn't in my budget any time soon. Us Pac-NWer's need to start up our own annual shindig.

Those pics bring back such great memories Bill!
Weather looks to be pretty nice this weekend... 66F and mostly sunny on Saturday, although it looks like showers on Sunday and 69F.
Hopefully the weather holds out and it ends up being nice on Sunday after all...
Last year it rained like a monsoon and there were still loads of people through the doors!
I wanted to let folks who may be coming to the show know that after many years of showing it in the frame and being asked...
I am FINALLY creating Limited Edition Museum Quality Archival 16 x 20 Giclee prints (suitable for framing) of my illustration, 'Sarracenia leucophylla' - from a bug's eye perspective. Due to the expensive printing and set up costs, I will have very few actual posters at the show but will be taking orders.
It won't have the tan background with the text, but will be on white heavy archival paper.
"Giclee prints (pronounced, "gee-clay"), from the French word meaning a spray of liquid,
are created from high-resolution* digital captures of original fine artwork, and printed
with professional level 7-color to 12-colorwide format ink-jet printers using archival
quality inks. The prints can be made on various surfaces matching the original medium,
such as canvas, watercolor, and photo-base paper.
The Giclee printing process, carried out by the master technician, provides better color
accuracy than any other means of reproduction.
The quality of the Giclee print rivals traditional photographic
silver-halide and gelatin printing processes as well as lithographic reproductions.* Fine
art Giclee prints are accepted by museums, fine art galleries and photographic galleries."
The show will be a great time, hope to see lots of new and returning folks this year.
oh boy oh boy oh boy!

YOU! Outta my gene pool!
I've got to get through two more days of school, and I think I'm going to pop.
Insanity is a sane response to an insane world.
Bill how much are they going for?
Dee ammm, that print is awesome. What info do you have on them if you are going to be taking orders? You wouldn't happen to have a series in mind would you? I love the wasp peering in from the rim too, incredibly personable looking wasp. I demand a print series because awesome subject materials with colors like that should not be alone!
Ugh! I think I have to go on Sunday and not Saturday, my brother has foot ball game and his school takes an out to get to. My mom didn't buy the "but this only happens once a YEAR" Still can't wait.
