I had a great time at Redland Orchid Festival this year! Met Walton Ray - always nice to put a face with screen name.

Dinner with Peter T Lin of Diamond Orchids, Ben Belton, and Ruben from Sunset Valley Orchids

Lunch at Shiver's BBQ with Ben, Mike, and Ramon.

Phal Lioulin Wild Cat and Phal Zheng Min Anaconda - clones - these were great hits and sold out at Ching Hua Orchids' tent.
Image

Pickup seedlings of Paph rothschildianum with good potenital. New clone of Jiaho Phalaenopsis - met Mr Huang from Jiaho. Last time I saw him was more 10 years ago.
Image

I couldn't resist a variegated Phalaenopsis japonica, and a yellow flower one just for fun. And a flask of Habenaria rhodocheila from Ching Hua Orchids. he has a flask where a seedling is flowering. I picked a flask with more plants in it.

Always want to try dessert rose (Adenium obesum). Saw these exotic color ones at a Taiwanese vendor.

Peter -- thanks...so nice of you to mention and, likewise, always great to put a face with a trusted purveyor. It was a pleasure meeting you. You worked so hard in all that humidity at the Ching Hua tent!

There were a lot of interesting things there this year...more than normal, even. I got up at 5:15 a.m. to get in line at the gate and still was only near the front of the line!

Glad you had a safe trip; people there drive like crazy and I was a nervous wreck the whole time on the road. It was good to be there, but I must say it is mighty fine to be back home in a quiet town!

Walton
