Wow I love the beautiful coloration on this plant, and the shot itself... I'm such a sucker for purple....you're husband is very good with a camera... it's a shame he doesn't like computers(Granted I don't either, I only have this one because my future husband is a computer programer and gave this to me) I think he should start his own gallery, once people knew about him all the different orchid lovers would flock to his page
This is one of our favourite orchids and it grows in very few places.
If my husband was to have a gallery then I would have to look after it and I don't have enough time to give mine my full attention.
Jim hates being in the house and he can't think of anything worse than sitting at a computer. He would much rather be in his veggie patch or walking around the local bush.
Its a really pretty flower, why does it have that name though?
Hee hee hee I know how you feel.... I always want to devote more time to my art... but it always gets interupted.... generally speaking sitting at a computer is better... that way I don't have to sweat more than necessary in the sun... I love my garden but I can't be in it all day... I have to weed in the cooler hours because I just overheat too much....I love walking around in the woods but I never do it often enough... granted woods are cooler and a little less parchd than I would consider the brush to be, but they both have some very interesting animals... and woods have ferns... which I love but cannot keep alive more than a month
Hmm thats weird... you can and should be able to find a bunch on them.... ah well, it was a curious question thats all...I did happen to see a article on a girl that went and made a name for herself in the brazillian forest studying certain orchids and how they show the heathiness of the forest around them... apparently they're the canary in the mine so to speak, as soon as the decline the forest begins to suffer as well... she has found several species that weren't even documented yet...
