    Wow...what a fantastic deal! They are absolutely gorgeous!

    My best deal was a ton of orchids and other plants ($528 worth) at Lowes for $5. The manager said I could have all the clearance plants I wanted for $5. So I loaded everything I could find that was decent or salvageable in two carts. Now I have waaaaaaaaaaay too many orchids (too many dens and phals).

    You definitely got a steal of a deal! Congratulations!

    You done good! Best deal I have ever seen. I thought I knew people who had horse shoes up their rear ends but this takes the cake. Oh how I wish I had a Lowes around me every time I hear of somebody getting a deal like that. As far as that silent auction at that Church... I'd beeeeeelieve if I could get plants like that for $40. I see that green and white spider looking orchid blooming in that middle of that first photo.

    Thanks for all the nice words. Yep they are tagged but the big white cattleya. I was a really lucky find and well worth the CP's I donated to the auction.
