I hope you are well and enjoying the pleasant weather and have many orchids in bloom. I am very excited that after a 3 year hiatus we will be having our Annual Orchid Auction on Saturday June 18th. It will be a great opportunity for us to get together, expand our collections and enjoy things getting back to normal. There will be a wide selection of plants from various vendors, club members and institutions that have made generous donations of plants and supplies. The auction will be at the church meeting hall from 1PM to 4PM, with the doors opening at 12pm for bidder registration and plant inspection. More in-depth information on this event can be found on the OSSC website. I look forward to seeing you all there.

Additionally, I wanted to remind you to mark your calendars as the Huntington Botanical Gardens is bringing back the International Orchid Show on October 14-16th. Please stay tuned as we get more information. If you can’t wait until then, there are several open houses and orchid sales happening in our region that you can find listed on page 3 of this newsletter or the Calendar page on the OSSC website.

Happy growing!
