Welcome Members and Guests,

Our February meeting will be a Jeff’s Memorial contest. Please see the second page, listed as meeting minutes, for details of the meeting.
     It’s only January 26, but the plants outside seem to think it’s spring already. The mango trees have bloomed, as have the peaches and nectarines, and the lychee trees are flushing. My orchid plants are blooming early. But, keep an eye out for cold snaps. At my house, I watch for freezes and frosts up until Valentine’s 

Day, and inland or north you need to watch until early March. I have had no freezes and one short frost, but nothing requiring any special treatment,’s still January, even if we have some March weather. 
     Out January meeting had record (for us) attendance, and it was more fun for all to have so many orchid lovers to talk to. We even had three guests! It was very encouraging. I hope to see all of you there in February, and good luck with your Jeff’s Memorial arrangements.
