    Hi All,

    I'm vacationing in the Fingerlakes area until next week. Any good orchid vendors within driving distance of Syracuse/Rochester, NY?

    There is a vendor southeast of Ithaca on rt 79 called 'a new leaf' and tony liu whose family grows orchids mostly for wegmans; they are on 366 east of the cornell campus. Joe kunisch is also a few miles east of Marlow orchids, he is Bloomfield orchids. Also open by appointment or different hours is the lady on German cross road just off of rt 79 southeast of Ithaca (the hollow) who has the oncidium hybrids. Eric and I stopped there on a Saturday while checking out native orchids, but they weren't open.

    Bloomfield is still active? That's a name I haven't encountered in years.

    As far as I know yes. There is also The Hollow orchids, tolumnia specialists.

    Ithaca isn't too far from where you are. There is another grower on the way to Glen's who grows African violets but also sells some orchids. I think the business name associated with it is Lynden Lyons, and it's just a little ways north of the ny state thruway a little ways west of deckers

    You should stop at the Dinosaur Barbecue in Syracuse, and try some spiedies or hot chicken wings somewhere, and some chicken riggies in the Utica area

    Definitely blew the budget but I got some goodies.

    I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area (call first and make an appt).

    Glenn is extremely nice and his greenhouses are well set up for viewing and shopping.

    So here is what I picked up:

    Paph Wossner Kolarmi - in bud (HUGE plant)
    Paph Cam's Cloud
    Paph malipoense - in bud (the big mottled in the pic.)
    Paph Magic Lantern - in bud (just because I have always wanted one).
    Phrag Eumelia Arias
    Phrag Alfredo Manrique

    On a side note, I highly recommend the Finger Lakes wine tastings. Here are the wineries that I thought were top notch.

    On Keuka Lake:
    Keuka Spring Vineyards

    On Seneca Lake:
    Standing Stone
    Fulkerson
    Hermann J. Wiemer
    Shaw Vineyard

    I had a fun vacation! FYI the Catt in the pic is a little red Jewel Box that I picked up from the Lowe's death table. Couldn't resist at 50% off. ;)
