I definitely walked away with some goodies... :p

Beautiful displays! And Woodstream came with a nice selection of paphs/phrags. This was my first year going (since it was my first year in the area). A bit small, but definitely nice!

A good haul!

I got a Phrag schlimii, fischeri, and a flask of sargentianum. So, I've got some compots to make! :D
