The weather has sure been nice for some spring cleaning!!! As I get the house ready for the orchid tour in July; I saw the picture posted on social media from another orchid lover and it pretty sums up how I feel about my house and the orchid grow space. I think you can pretty much agree that we all could use a little more room for the orchid kids!
The dendrobiums are all starting to bud and pop with their color and fragrance. I have this kingianum right now that has over 30 flowers on it!!! And the sweet cinnamon fragrance it goes off in the mornings is absolutely intoxicating! It has been one full year as your President and it has been a lot of great education and a lot of fun!!!
The best part is seeing that sparkle of curiosity and amazement in a new member’s eyes when they see the world of orchids open up! I’m looking forward to another fun filled year as your President. If you have ever considered being on the board; stop by at a board meeting and listen in. Or pull me aside and lets chat! We are looking for future talent for the orchid society.
Final reminder to get your membership current for the coming new year. All memberships need to be current to be included in the printed directory and to be able to go on the July Growers’ Tour.
See everyone this month! Be there as I heard there was a surprise from our speaker. Hint…. it has to do with the infamous vanilla.
