Northwest Orchid Society Show

This post is long overdue.  The show featured in the post was held last spring and I have only now gotten around to sorting the pictures and posting some of them here for your perusal.

The Northwest Orchid Society draws from the Seattle area and is larger than our own Mount Baker Orchid Society.  Its show is held every spring at a large nursery in Shoreline, Washington.

I did not have a display in the show or plants in the Mount Baker Society display, but did attend and brought several plants for American Orchid Society judging, three of which were awarded.

Shows are notoriously difficult for good pictures, though this show is better than many with a lot of table top exhibits backed with black velvet.  I apologize for the poor quality of some pictures

I apologize, too, for the fact that I did not get all the names.  I make a practice of photographing the tags along with the plants, but in some cases forget to do so or do not find a name with the plant.

    1. Don't know, Pam. Part of it is botanical - all plants have latinized names, and part of it is just the whim of hybridizers who give really weird names to some of their creations.
