Beautiful. I just don't think of orchids in Texas. Shame on me. Has the drought affected the area?

That's what I thought years ago. This approximately 12 acre piece of property is supposed to have seven different species of orchids, ten different species of ferns and four of the five different types of carnivorous plants found in the US. The drought hasn't been to bad in that particular area. The US Drought Map show that area classified as "abnormally dry".

Stunning Jay! Wow, thanks for those photos!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
