    Went to the show on Monday and took a bunch of pictures. Theme is "World of Water." First bunch of the grand entrance with the waterfall.

    One exhibitor tried to do a Pacific NW wedding scene. Paph slipper orchids in decorative terrariums.

    A mega flower arrangement featuring orchids on bamboo (never thought of mounting orchids on bamboo).

    A landscape with a pond. We have a pond, and part of going to the show was to get ideas for our pond. I like the ceramic koi, but am worried that they would easily break/shatter. A vendor had the ceramic koi for sale (starting at $30 for a small one). I didn't buy any, but did end up buying copper cattails (http://www.windandfirechimes.com/).

    A different landscape exhibit. I liked the frog made of sedums.
