    Hi all,

    Thought I'd share some exciting finds while touring China last week. I didn't expect to see any orchids, nor did I plan any special trips to find orchids...I was just lucky enough to catch sight of these! It is truly spectacular to see them growing in the wild

    I'll check with Brett and see if we have options on this.

    I was a rethorical question, never the less having them will be nice when one wants to indulge in semiotic praise!

    Gorgeous! And I'm envious, but so glad you were able to see them in person. How exciting. Thanks for sharing.
