Feeding the Beast
...OR: Cassie goes to an Orchid Show.
And I thought I had a problem. Really, I've only just scratched the surface. 15, 16 orchids? Pshaw! This weekend, I gazed into the maw of serious orchid obsession. And what did I do? I bought three more plants.
The show was hosted by the Amherst Orchid Society. The lighting was atrocious (I apologize for the flagrant use of a flash in many of these pix, but it couldn't be helped. And more pix here.) Man, were there some crazy-ass plants there. Plus, if I ever decide I'm done with jewelry making (don't worry, it's not gonna happen), I'll sell orchids to frozen New Englanders in February. Seriously, it was like What recession? in there. But it was good to see people spending on something they loved.
And yes, I know orchids are, like, so 1996, but I don't care. I like them, so shut up. :)
