Orchids are here

the orchids

Orchid has never been the central focus in our garden. Having a few of them is adequate to complete the biodiversity theme. Their growth is very slow almost like snails. It is difficult to anticipate when the plant will bloom. After a while we tend to forget about orchids blooming. Then out of a sudden a little stalk starts to protrude. And the anticipation and anxiety begins.

A few flowering orchids to share here.
