Santa Barbara International Orchid Show 2015 (NO.2)

 The large-scale exhibition by Cal Orchids.
 The exhibition by Orchid Royal, exhibited Paphiopedilums mainly. I was fascinated by very high quality of many Paphiopedilums. Orchid Royal is one of nurserys of long standing for big flower type of Cymbidium and modern complex type Paphiopedilums in U.S.A. The quality is very high.
The exhibition awarded Gold Medal in the category of Paphiopedilum exhibition.It is very high quality of Japanese style exhibition.
 There was a higher observatory in the center of hall, we could enjoy very interesting landscape.
   Many kinds of Masdevallias were exhibited.
As I mentioned befor, many exhibitions were prepared by Scieties and the exhibited orchids were grown by their members. So, the exhibition were composed by so various kinds of orchid flowers. It is very intersting like a toy's box.
  We could see an amatour eager photographer just like in Japan.
   3 pretty girls ....... yes, pose ..... very good!
 Phalenopsis is popular like Cymbidium in California. Many hobbyist grow Phalenopsis in their garden but not in soil.
In almost of all exhibition, Cymbidium was leading character.
  In the openning day of this show, they have a big program, inviting primary school students and making tour. A judge member of CSA or AOS take charge of each groupe. I believe the children will be intersted in orchids and they will grow orchids. Furthermore some of them will be a member of CSA or AOS in future. In Japan, we are required like this, I guess.
In the tent outside, the special area was prepared for orchid growing class, 3 times a day. The class was full up evry time. The participants were enjoyed very much.
In this show, they have categories of art and crafts.
Good color, shape .....I love these flowers  
There were the categories of flower arrangement or flower design. I was surprized in the unique style in USA that was very differnt from Japan.
  They have a category of flower corsage.
It was just in California, so many corsage using Cymbidium flowers intead of Cattleya in Japan.
