Not a whole lot of them but here are a few of the nicer ones.

A&P had two plants nominated for AOS judging, the first, Gilbert Blythe, came away with an AM (80 or 82? cannot recall) I sat in on judging, I always learn so much!!



and Mint Chocolate, not pointed.


Maudiae 'The Queen', was very nice.



An Orchilla cross...sorry, can't remember which. Have the schedule at home so I'll try to fill in later. Great dorsal, but the pouch was a little askew and the stems did not develope fully.

A sukhakulii cross from A&P. Lots of sukh. crosses blooming at the show.


Another labelled as sukh, but perhaps a hybrid? Still, I liked it. I like these a lot, actually. I could see an Iantha Stage in my future...


Jupiter(?), backlit nicely by sunshine.


henryanum, same time of day.


Finally, two phrags.

amazonica (which was very nice colorwise, I thought!)


and Cape Gold Nugget (Eric Young 'Mont Millais' x ecuadorense (pearcei) which was also pulled for judging and very sweet but not sweet enough. :)

i've been thinking that an Iantha Stage is in my future too...
there's a cross, i think Macabre x roth which is also a possibility...
perhaps Philip Ruggiero

I was also in the neighborhood. Of slippers, I liked the Phrag. amazonica most, see Heather's nice photo. There were a couple more I liked but my picture didn't come out very good. Here are some more pictures, please enjoy:

Yes, the don't know is Puppentanz, grown by Marty Epstein from NHOS. Got a first I believe.

Thomas, when were you there? Looks like it was Friday, since the cards were still up. Would have liked to have met you! Pretty far to travel for a show. ;)

Yeah, I was there, Friday. I was in New England last week and it worked out that I could go to the show. The show was nice and I really liked The Tower Hill Botanic Garden; it was very pleasant.
