I would like to add,
The Sarasota Orchid Society is holding their annual Orchid Show and Sale, Saturday and Sunday.
It is being held at the Sarasota Municipal Auditorium at 801 North Tamiami Trail, Sarasota.
This is a great show for Orchid lovers. Many vendors selling orchids from all over the Country. Vendors selling orchid supplies, free culture classes.
A great place to get out of the cold and enjoy the beauty of the flowers!

I apologize, Sunshine for repeating what you already posted. I just realized you had included the show. Somehow I didn't notice it at first.
