I'm sorry I did not post any pictures of Kew orchids from August; last month was a bit hectic, both professionally and personally. I hope you don't mind if some of the pictures were taken a few weeks ago.The growing season is starting to wind down now; not a lot in bloom, but here are some orchids that may be of interest.Thumb of 2010-09-12/rbtkew/adcf44
