An apology to boojum...she kindly set up this thread for me and I have yet to post anything for February, and its the 27th already! Here is a few pictures I took this week and I'll start a March thread next week. Kew has been having it's annual Tropical Extravaganza with plenty of orchids on display,so I have included some pictures taken in the Princess of Wales Concervatory and the Waterlilly House. I hope you like them.

I have just moved the March flowers at Kew to their own thread http://cubits.org/orchids/thread/view/11481/. See you there.

Just wanted to explain why I've put them into monthly categories instead of leaving all the Kew pics in one thread. I personally like to look back at which month different orchids are in bloom so I can anticipate when a particular genus may be spiking. (If I have something in that genus, or the same orchid) So that's why I've split them into months.

Thanks Kathy,
I was going to ask if orchids bloomed all year and this will be a great tool to find them!
