    San Diego Orchid Society show from today

    The theme was "A Rainbow of Orchids" and it goes on all weekend long. I might go again tomorrow or Sunday to poke around more because I went mainly today to buy some stuff I was looking for for a while (Paphs).

    Here's my pictures of the show...



































    (orchid stamps...about half the collection on show)

    Cool, I love the orchid shows! I always spend a lot so I suppose the vendors love me too!
    Looks like you don't get off any cheaper! LOL


    That tree with all the mini Cattleyas (I think) is great!

    It's at the Scottish Rite Center on Camino del Rio (Mission/Fashion valley?) - all this weekend. Weekend pass is $10, day pass is $7. If you go to the SDCOS webpage and follow the link you can get $1 off.

    And yeah, that Cattleya tree is even better looking in person. I might go stare at it some more today after neeming the new plants...and I'm switching out the bushes in the front (Hibiscus instead of some ugly spider/bee attractor that produces inedible blue berries).

    I love the different and unusual flowers these plants grow.

    Catasetum of some sort perhaps?
    I've only ever seen one in person myself at an orchid show this past January.
