Sarcochilus Show!

 Thank goodness!   Our last orchid show for the year is finally over and done! We had almost 300 plants on display and i must admit, everything went really well for our one day show. We are both really pleased with our four prizes, especially as one of our plants was considered for grand champion. That was a real boost for us as we have never been that close before. I am so pleased that things went so well, as show marshall, the 'buck' as they say, stops with me so it's nice to be congratulated instead of castigated lol... Now i can have a rest until next years round of events. 

                                  A view down the hall.



Oh, i almost forgot, can't rest just yet, got to get over christmas but that's something i'm looking forward to, lunch at my son's home with all the family.....  Can't get any better than that.

good to hear you had a non-controversial roll at the show - always a toss up if you are going to get an earful in that sort of roll!

the blossoms look lovely, and the hall nice and light. A great event by all accounts :)

Hi Faith, thanks for stopping by and for your comment. the 'flower' i think you are reffering to is a 'hot pad' that i found on crohetnuts site.You will find the link on my other blog, time to cook and craft if you would like the pattern. It's very easy to do and very effective.. :))
