My only complaint at this show is that some of the plants are not labeled, leaving us to puzzle over what the heck they are. This golden beauty, however, is BLC Abbeville 'Golden Promise'. Her flowers were a little past their peak, but they were exquisitely lovely.
This is one of the few orchids that I could easily find a label for. It's Lycaste 'Chita Impulse', which I don't remember having ever seen before. It was quite stunning, with fairly large flowers.
By the time we had finished at the show, gone for lunch, and headed back home, I was done like dinner, so today is a rest day. I just wanted to share some photos from the show, and encourage others to try their hand at growing these remarkable, rewarding plants. I was told, some years ago by an orchid breeder and judge, that they are like potato chips and that you can't have just one. I resisted for years, but no longer!
Have you succumbed to orchids yet? And if you can identify any of the unnamed orchids in this post, please feel free to do so, and I'll add their names!
