I was hoping Faan would post some pictures but now I can’t resist any longer. In the past TOG has put on big shows and while this year’s show was smaller it was still spectacular walking into a hall literally packed with orchids!

This was the best Paph. I assume we all know its name...
tog1.jpg


Best in show: Pot. Haw Yuan Gold YK #2
tog2.jpg


I think this Phrag was robbed. This happens a lot over here… This Phrag Dick Clements grown by Roy and Erica Swart. The photo is with the flash on. The flower looks plastic so excellent was the substance and the colour was rich rich rich red like blood. It didn’t even get an award. I’m sure the judges had their reasons…

Iwanagaara Cape Orange.
tog4.jpg


An anceps hybrid… Coastal Sunrise I think.
tog5.jpg


Best Paph hybrid. I hope Faan can supply a name… But the best is yet to some…
tog6.jpg


A little Slc. Mahalo Jack 4N (best mini Catt). I can’t recall if the flash was on. It was pretty bright without the flash best I recall.
tog7.jpg


Slc. Kagaribi Dawn “Red Star”. The flash was on with this one.
tog8.jpg


Odcdm. Tiger Hambuhren “Mieke” x Oda Flower Carol Ann (best Oncid).
tog9.jpg


Cym. Miss Muffet. My word was this thing tiny! I love it.
tog10.jpg


This is World Venture x Greenstede x Redwick. Somewhere brackets are missing.

Missed this one’s name. I hate it when the plant label isn’t well displayed! i think this is the daddy of my avatar: Paph (Timbrel Herkules x Another World) x Simon. Faan will know...
tog12.jpg


We’ve seen this one before: Winston Promise.
tog13.jpg


How did this fellow lose to that Maudae hybrid up above? These masterianum hybrids are stunning! I want one. It is Via Quantal “Toffee Jones” x masterianum “Butterscotch”. Also grown by Roy and Erica Swart.

Is it a MDC? The shape looks nothing like mine or others I've seen.
 
Goldenrose, I suppose it is supposed to be MDC. I'm not expert. All I can say is that it was very red and quite big.

I'm reposting the other pics into this thread where all the replies are appearing (Moderators, please delete the other thread!).

This is a Leeanum.
tog15.jpg


So is this one…
tog16.jpg

Here is a bulldog for Roy in Australia: Noelle Claue “Picasy” by Roy and Erica Swart. It looks plastic. You can see the substance. Sadly, it isn’t very flat or round.
tog17.jpg


Paph Aladin. An oldie but a goodie.
tog18.jpg


Sl. Little Red Seagul. I don’t know, but I think that Mahalo Jack stole this one’s prize.
tog19.jpg


Paph (Winston Churchill x Kimura’s Red) x (Winston Churchill x Kimura’s Promise).
tog20.jpg


And here is another clone:
tog22.jpg


Looking for that perfect blue Catt?
tog21.jpg


And what is an orchid show without the sukhukli?
tog23.jpg


Paph Joanne’s Wine
tog24.jpg


Paph label hidden out of sight—one of those more mysterious hybrids.
tog25.jpg


tog26.jpg


Paph haynaldianum.
tog27.jpg


Soph. coccinea.
tog28.jpg


And more coccinea! Grown by Sheila Smith. However did that Mahalo Jack win?
tog31.jpg
 
No name Paph…
tog29.jpg


Paph Buckhurst x Mrs MB Miles “Paradise Beauty” grown by the Swarts.
tog30.jpg


I think this Wilsonaria Hildra Plumtree
tog32.jpg


More bulldogs…
tog33.jpg

(Winston Churchill x Kimura’s Red) x (Lovely Land x Lovely Yard)
tog34.jpg


This one was actually a NOID. How sad.
tog35.jpg


Hope you enjoyed the show.

Remember! The best time to visit South Africa is September. The TOG show is the first weekend. The Duckett show and Darling wild flower show is the second weekend. The COS show is normally the third. The forth weekend you can take a hike up onto one of the mountains and see the wild orchids.
