I added a lot of single-plant shots to their respective database entries, but here are some orchids & some farther-back pics. What an amazing display they have created in a relatively small space! If you are in the area, it's well worth a trip here just to see their conservatory, not to mention all of the non-plant items there.

Pics were all taken 9/16/2017.

So glad you enjoyed them, TYVM! It's a shame scratch'n'sniff technology does not yet exist. Some of them had the most amazing scents!

Beautiful photos... it sounds like a wonderful vacation!

So Tiffany, did you find any new ones you wanted to add to your collection? Whistling
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Fulfilling ambitious objectives is usually done one step at a time.

Yes, I want a chocolate tree! LOL! It took so much restraint, every bit that I could muster, to not touch the tree and even more to not pick a pod. Of course that would have been futile, they were not ripe, and I would never be able to process into something edible.
