Orchid Show Eastwood Winter 2017

There are dozens of orchid shows around Sydney throughout the year, the busiest time during spring but we are in winter and yesterday we attended one of the suburban shows.

The venue was the centre court of a small shopping centre and the surroundings were distracting but I did my best to take photographs.  The point-and-shoot device that I used was the iPhone6 which I found somewhat inadequate to focus on the displays.

The local society presented an impressive selection of quality blooms.  Ang was able to gain valuable advice and insight from one of the members on orchid care.

Eastwood being famous for good Asian food, Ang, Ben, Deb and I enjoyed an excellent lunch at Ginger and Shallots after the show.  Thank you, Ben for providing transport.

I was most impressed by this Dockrillia that grew from a basket with virtually no media, thus demonstrating that it is a true air plant
