Megabus, that sounds like a big bus. It could also be half the title of a movie on the sci-fi channel "megabus vs. sharknado"

Ok. I took the 1 AM bus from NYC, 2 metro liines, and a transit bus and made it to judging on time, despite the rains! I will post photos when I get back to NYC. I saw Cheyenne, Linus, and a few other STF'rs. I pick up a couple Restrepias, a Paph, and a Phrag in bloom/bud. Unfortunately after I paid for my plants and was running to make my ride, I saw a schlimii hybrid I wanted across from the cash register Linus was working. :( Oh well, can't have everything.

Thanks for coming Eric and Cheyenne. The greenhouses are warm and dry. Please come see the show (and sales).

(In the spirit of Trithor's "modesty," I put in a 3-plant exhibit for a last minute cancellation- 2 paphs and 1 mini-catt; as a slipper specialist, I was shocked to win best mini-catt in show rosette... who'd a thunk it?)

SOrry for the delay. This is a nice Asco. Irene Dobkin type Phal. I need to get one









There were many Habenarias being sold as erichmichelii that are obviously hybrids with carnea, this is a true one.

Linus, if the vendor across the entry door from the cash register (i.e. to your right as you work) still has that one Phrag (looks like a schlimii hybrid) please pick it up for me and I'll pay you for it, thanks! :D

You have a pick of the Maryland exhibit? I want to see how much the butchered that Cymbidium between the past two shows.

Sorry, it was sold Saturday morning.
Thanks for posting the pics! (But where's the pic of my exhibit? :wink: )
