Green Thumb Festival - Chapter 2

Click on images to enlarge and see the detail of these amaizing plants!

Yes Julie, I did buy an orchid. LOL Isn't it beautiful? There were many orchid sellers there. I believe they were only out numbered by the cactus & succulent vendors. The festival was BIG this year :)

My eco-friendly shopping bag filled with bromeliads purchased from the Florida Westcoast Bromeliad Society. Great prices, especially on the bareroots.

This is where they escaped from the shopping bag, LOL. All laid out and ready to photo.

Aint's she purty?

So colorful?

Purple & bromeliad? What's not to like?

My bare rooters - cross your fingers.
