    Probably not going - but if we do decide to swing by, it'll be Sunday. Saturday we're heading to some wineries and a concert in the Brandywine Valley.

    Speaking of wine.......

    Somebody I never heard of, a folk/rock artist named Rory Sullivan. It's at one of the wineries and they sent me free tix for my b-day (along with 15% off any purchase.)

    I'll probably swing by this afternoon. My wife promised to buy me a plant for our anniversary (tomorrow - 34!).

    Eddie, we went down to the Wilma Theater and saw Rock Tenor last weekend. I highly recommend it.

    I went yesterday, and it was MUCKY! Parking was along the road, as the field was too wet for cars, and they had put straw down in the tent to try to keep the mud under control, but every step was a squelch, especially near the more popular vendors. Wear waterproof, mudproof shoes! I would have enjoyed it a lot more if I weren't in leather sandals.

    But I still managed to have a lovely time, and bought several new treasures:

    Gastrochilus fuscopunctatus (thanks to recent inspiring pictures here)
    Laelia sincorana var. coerulea
    Sophronitis rosea
    Vandopsis parishii var. Marottiana
    Trt. lanceanum 'Peggy Chin'
    Catt. leopoldii
    Bulbo. medusae (huge!)
    Den. laevifolium
    Bulb. barbigerum
    Paph. Ma Belle

    Good shopping! Sounds almost like you were hiking in rain forest collecting plants.
