Orchids in bloom
17 February, 2012
Orchids were in full bloom during last weekend’s Orchid Show and Sale in Grand Cayman. Held at the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park in partnership with the Cayman Islands Orchid Society, the annual show and sale has become a popular event. A stunning display was on show in the facility’s visitors centre. All orchids were grown by members of the CIOS and prize ribbons were awarded to the best on display. The competition was judged by Claude W. Hamilton, an accredited judge with the American Orchid Society. This year’s winners were: Kirkland Nixon, Peggy O’Hara, Mary-Rose Henderson, Mary-Anne Lawrence, Sue Gibb, Chet Ritch, Elizabeth Triana, Penny Jordan, Anita Hartwell, Jackie Balls, Reba Foster, Elizabeth Walker, Christine Rose-Smyth, Stewart Mailer and Carla Reid. Best in Show was awarded to Eloise Seymour.
