Pam became interested in orchids in 2005 due to their beauty. She started out in this industry with a lot of love and worked extremely hard to be where she is today. Orchids require a lot of love and a little amount time. They grow into beautiful flowers and bring us happiness and joy. Please visit her and her beautiful orchids at her green house!

Our orchid show needs you! This year’s theme is ORCHID ISLAND and the show will take place March 27th and 28th. We hope to use our combined imaginations to make our display beautiful and memorable. Of course we will need all your blooming plants so get them growing.
Currently we are also looking to compile a list of objects that we might use in the display to accent the orchids and fit our theme “Orchid Island”. Things relevant to the theme might include sea shells, sponges, corals, drift wood and rocks. Also, nautical items like fish nets, ship hardware or ropes might also be useful. We are looking to compile a list of these items in advance of the of the show. If you have any of these things and would allow us to borrow them from Friday March 26th to Sunday March 28th, would you please respond by email or call me with any questions ? firstname.lastname@example.org. 352.503.7858
We hope you are all staying safe and healthy, and that your orchids are making your days brighter. Please post some pictures on our Nature Coast Orchid Society Facebook group for all to enjoy! That is also a great place to find the latest news and updates about our society.
Please pass this information along to others who may not be in our e-mail chain. We will be updating our website, and social media.
Best wishes for your continued good health,
The NCOS Board of Directors
