The 86th meeting of the Mid-America Orchid Congress was this weekend in Lexington, Kentucky and fortunately I was lucky enough to make it. Unfortunately, my laptop and camera were determined to make my weekend much more frustrating, but with all the great orchids and great people it was an accecptable trade off.

Many great vendors were there, and I imagine they did quite well. It was a rare treat to meet people such as Harry Phillips from Andy's Orchids, Dr. William Goldner of Woodstream Orchids, Weyman Bussey, and Ivan Portilla from EcuaGenera to name a few. Of course, the best part was sitting in the bar with all the night owls after setup and having a few drinks. The lectures were fantastic, and the southern hospitality was as good as you hear about. Shows like this always remind me that I don't look like an orchid person, and it is always great to see such experienced growers faces light up when I ask about very esoteric plants.

Enough rambling, here's some pics! Again I must apologize, my camera settings were way out of whack and the manual was 100 miles away. I should really spend more time learning all the settings on this dang thing.

Nice looking display, Jon! Your society always seems to do a nice job.
I love some of those - the Harold Koopowitz of Sam's is wonderful, I love the violacea alba. There have been several Cycnoches cooperii brought to my society lately and I find them fascinating. I think I am developing an adoration of anything named 'medusae'. That Habaneria is sweet!!

Sounds like you had a fun time. Thanks for thinking of us poor show deprived folks at home. :)
