A couple weekends ago we stopped by at the Orchid and Bonsai Show at Kalani High School. It's been years since I've stepped into the Kalani High School cafeteria (that's my alma mater). I received some complimentary entry cards which are more like reminder cards. The orchid organizations that organize the show just ask for a donation at the door.
There were many beautiful orchids to look at and/or purchase. I was amazed at how they are able to get them all to bloom for the show. There must be some secret trick to that. There were some really interesting ones that had scents. Even some that smelled like chocolate! I tried to find a vanilla orchid there, but nobody had any. There were some super small orchids. The flower actually looked like a "normal" orchid, but it was soooo small. Like a half a centimeter in size or so. That was amazing!
Another feature at this show was the miniature Japanese town. Take a look at the photo. Almost looks like I took a picture of a real Japanese house in the country. It's really neat. Someone should bring their train set and set it up to run along the Japanese town at the next show! :)
