Over the Rainbow

Cyp. parviflorum v. makasin 'George Ferguson'
Phrag. Bouley Bay (this won an HCC)
  I've recently returned from the Kansas Orchid Show in Wichita. It was a SWROGA/AOS joint operation, and it was totally awesome. I caught a sneak peek of the displays Wednesday evening and attended several talks on Friday.

Thursday morning, I had the wonderful opportunity to act as a clerk for the ribbon judging team entrusted with evaluating slipper orchids. We looked at over 70 amazing plants, including the best from Sam Tsui, a glorious Phrag grown by Dr. Frank Serra, and mind-blowing Cypripediums from Doug and Beth Martin. Some of them won AOS awards.
Paph. hennisianum var. christiansonii (got an AM)

And I remembered to bring my camera!
