I hope you are well. This month’s show at the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens was a great success and I was so impressed by our many talented members. We received numerous awards including 2nd place for the best society display, 32 ribbon awards, and 8 plaque awards including best in show and first place cattleya, best vanda (2nd place for the show), best phalaenopsis, and best miscellaneous genus. I would also like to thank everyone who contributed a plant and everyone who came to help to set it up. Thank you!

This month on Monday, November 14th, we will have Fred Clarke give a talk on spotted and splash colored cattleya. Fred is a highly accomplished grower, hybridizer, AOS Judge and the owner and operator of Sunset Valley Orchids in Vista, California. There will be a plant table this month with selections brought in from Sunset Valley Orchids. I look forward to seeing you all.

Best,

James
