I put in the same showcase as last year, but with a new background for the orchids, a cliff and waterfall. I had wanted to put in a real waterfall, but my engineering skills were not up to the task, so I used fake water, though it looked real enough that several people asked if I had to change the water often. My display won several ribbons and a trophy for the best species. Had a fun and relaxing time putting in the exhibit.

(the second is our society's exhibit)
(these two plants received AOS awards - the second one is mine)
