I go to a certain greenhouse here in Maine every Nov. for their annual pointsettia festival and couldn't help taken some pictures of the lovely AV's they had. I thought i'd post them here for you all to enjoy after a stressful holiday in the kitchen. ^_^

No names, sorry, but each pot was only $3.99 and I was smitten with several.

Off hand, that fourth one reminds me of Optimara 'My love'. Was there a little plastic marker with the name 'Optimara' on it, sticking out of the soil? Optimara is stocked in lots of stores and they sell cheaply. But they are pricey if you go to their website, SelectiveGardener.com, to buy them. Of course, you are assured of proper identification in the latter case.

Beautiful pictures! If they are Optimara sometimes there is a number or way to identify them on the stick.

The only thing the tag said on all of them was :
African Violet 4" $3.99

I think they are all beautiful, i've never seen one I didn't like. ^_^
