|I have been away from this forum for a while now.I had a stay in hospital followed by recuperation in Cornwall. Then disaster struck; my computer gave up the ghost taking the last 2 years of pictures from Kew with it. We had a month without a computer which was interesting. The first week I was lost but soon got used to it. It was a reminder of the old days without them; remember those?.Here are some pictures of the latest orchid in bloom at Kew. I'm trying not to think of the pictures I have lost and, no I hadn't backed them up, some things you have to learn the hard way!

|Sorry to hear about your computer woes(as I back up my pictures). Nice pics to start a new album. The Angraecum eichlerianum is a really interesting looking flower.|

|As always, your pics fill me with joy. Hope you are well now. We have all lost pics by not backing up. I now have an external drive and an online backup. I assume you can download all your posted pics from Kew on this cubit.|

|Beautiful photos! So sorry to hear of your computer woes. Don't toss it out, someone might be able to retrieve the photos someday. I was told all my photos and everything was lost after I spilled a glass of grape juice over my laptop keyboard, but a new motherboard ($$$, ouch) and everything was back.|

I hope you feel better! And - sorry about the loss of your pictures, I am so glad you at least have posted them here on cubits!
Everything here in this thread is interesting and beautiful! I adore the Cypripedium formosanum stand!
