    Josh (I feel like I'm talking to myself!) have you been to the plant conservatory greenhouses at the Como Zoo? On the last weekend of January is the MN orchid show during the Winter Carnival. Lots of vendors to spend money at as well!

    Unfortunately I'm at school during the St. Paul winter carnival and not really an orchid enthusiast...any CP's though?

    It's been a while since I've been to the conservatory there though.

    Last January almost every display had at least one Ping but there was maybe only a few common retail greenhouse Nep hybrids (miranda, ventrata, etc). I don't know if the Orchid Society has a limit on how many non-orchids can be in a display. I have a feeling they probably would.

    The new fern room at the Como Zoo conservatory is awesome I'll see if I can find my pics of that for the fern forum.

    Absolutely gorgeous, I love botanical gardens. Thanks for the close ups of the orchids, esp. the phals, phrags and cute little dracula.
    Your pictures gave me a very enjoyable tour with my morning coffee.

    Great photos, it is always interesting to see what others see (and wonder why you didn't see it).

    I'm glad you were able to make it even though it is a bit of a drive for you. I hope you had the time to see more of the gardens and some of the exhibits. There are a number of CPer's in the San Diego area. We had one guy from SD at the April(?) meeting who used to work for California Carnivores. He had some incredible shots of Darlingtonia from lesser accessible areas - a small population with yellow hoods, and another (or perhaps it was the same - memory lacks) with enormous "tongues" over 2/3 the length of the tube.

    Perhaps if you can connect with these people you carpool and rotate driving to come to the meetings more often.

    Yeah, what was with the south bound traffic yesterday. It took my 1.5 hours to get to Redondo Beach.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
