    If you haven't already seen it I thought I'd share Carter and Holmes's display at the South Carolina show this weekend. Since it was on FaceBook I didn't thnk it was a copyright infringement. I'll probably hear otherwise from somebody. c&[email protected] by Jacknet1, on Flickr

    Auction in Atlanta tomorrow

    One of our society members puts on an orchid auction every year and I believe it's open to anyone. You can sell and buy. It's pot luck and there is a pool to beat the heat. I'm told that at the end of the day you can get some really good deals. PM me if you want details.
