Those of you who like orchids will all know the name Robert Fuchs. Yesterday I had the great privilege to tour not only his nursery but his private gardens as well. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
I will be adding to this thread as I download and label my pictures. Some will end up in the database too!

This picture is a bit out of focus but I wanted you to see the lovely display piece that they were working on in the nursery anyway.

Drooling more pictures!

I always wonder if I could ever get my orchids to bloom like that. I feel doubly bad since I have the climate for them, I don't need to build a greenhouse or anything but I can't seem to keep them as healthy as I would like.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.

The orchids are beautiful, of course. But I have that Dracena 'Lemon Lime' and that really jazzes me! I hope mine looks like that someday! Green Grin!
