    Sometimes folks can get a little carried away at auctions

    We have all been there. Auction fever can overcome even the strongest among us. Today I went to an orchid auction, as most club members did I both donated and purchased plants.
    As they are auctioned off the plants are marked with winner's number and bid price and placed in the holding area until their new owners pay for and claim them.
    After I claimed my plants and was waiting in line to pay for them I heard the woman behind me exclaim "I don't believe it"
    It seems that in the grip of auction fever she had bid on and won her own plant. One she had donated that morning.
    It's a tough life being a Sarracenia farmer

    She saw what she wanted. I guess it was what she had all along.

    It's poetic really.
