    Portland Orchid show photos

    My mother and I road tripped down to Portland this past weekend for the Portland Home and Garden show/Orchid show.. So many gorgeous orchids.. I was pretty much just snapping at random.. lol.. And I know relatively little about orchids, just that I love them.. heh. I barely know enough to label all of these with correct species, so will just dump em all without labels.. Enjoy!

    Quality is kinda peh... The whole building wasnt really lit, everything was just kinda spot lit with various single bulbed fixtures so made for a hellova time getting good photos.

    Very enjoyable pics, Brie. Makes me alternately wish I could've been there and feel better for seeing nice images of the show. I love the dark paphs.

    Nice pics, Brie. You did well considering the poor lighting. (I know, I was there on Friday) I hope you stopped to say hi to Jacob! He had some nice big Nepenthes there. I was tempted by an alata hybrid!

    That Paphiopedilum "macabre" just stole me heart.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Same here. Something about a sinister looking orchid excites me to no end.

    You should have picked up one of the miniature Cattleyas!!! Those look incredible. Do you by any chance remember the vendor's name?
