My interest in orchids began in the summer of 1999 with the gift of a plant from my neighbor who grew them, and has grown into a fairly sizable collection, for someone who has lived in a townhouse until very recently. I enjoy taking photos of them, and eventually intend to post those here, but that library has grown very large and is all prints, so that will take some time. In the meantime, I can start this section with this:
