    San Diego Spring Orchid Show & Sale (Pics Heavy)

    This weekend was SD's Orchid Society's big Spring Show weekend. Usually there'll be a Nep or two, maybe some good potting soil ingredients, and net-style pots available along with the distractingly pretty flowers so it's always worth a look. It was two rooms - the first one you walk through is all the displays, show and award plants along with where the talks were being held, and the second is the sales room.

    The show:






























    The mother of all 'Chid stamp collections!














    With actual goldfish!


























    A lovely unlabeled spotty Phal mutt

    This was the extent to the potting stuff I found.. guess I don't need nuthin'

    I am now approximating the size of that facility to be 15,000 square feet. That was a lot of photos.

    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.

    My major issue with you, is that your photographs are simply too few. Couldn't you snap just a few more?

    I don't think he has any more photos. Let me rephrase that, I don't think it's possible for him to have any more photos.

    You know me - paucity to save on film. Those digital camera film canisters get expensive! I will endeavor to take more next time, for you.
