Here are the four flowers awarded by the AOS judging team at this year's show held this past weekend. The first three are from Orchids, Ltd. I didn't get the clonal names on two of them. My apologies for the picture quality. I am learning to use a new digital camera.

This Paph delenatii forma albinum received an AM


This Paph Franz Glanz (ameniacum x emersoni) received an AM


Paph venustum 'Lakehead' AM/AOS


Paph Estella 'Julie' AM/AOS


I will post a some more pictures when I get a chance:)

That is great that you live near a place that has a show when your flowers are ready.

I am only near one orchid show and it is in the fall. Maybe some of the club members that travel will be able to transport my orchids earlier in the year?

Thanks, Matt. When I had to give the plant a clonal name, I decided to honor my wife, Julie. When I told this to Rick B. and Nancy P., the two other growers I shared a display with, they both started laughing. While I was working at the plant registration, Julie, Rick, and Nancy were building the display. Julie was having a hard time placing the Estella in the display because of the way the flower spike slanted, and she commented in frustration, "I don't know why in the world Ross ever bothered to bring this plant!" The next day I named it after her.

See, I knew that Estella was your's Ross, cause I knew your wife's name.
That's just the sweetest thing, to be able to name a plant after your beloved sweetheart. :smitten:

Really nice Estella. Congrats again. What was the pointage? (is that a word?)

After it was awarded did you tell her, "Because I know a winner when I pick her"? :)
