What a lovely color!

Are orchids your hobby or is that your business?


Loved the haiku that accompanies the picture.

Thanks Halo,

It's true a lot of poetry is dedicated to flowers and to nature in general but unfortunately not much to orchids. And this may sound silly me loving orchids so much, but I never have been able to create a real Orchid poem.
Have been trying but always got stuck somewhere in the middle...hahaha. But Iam determined to make one, and I think I have the right angle now, so let's hope something acceptable rolls out of my keyboard!  :tongue

Witt,

I saw this orchid at a nursery...took the picture and just had to take it home with me! Contrary to common believe this is an orchid from high up the mountains and requires cold day temperatures and even cooler nights. So it was quite a challenge for me to keep it healthy but it awarded my good care with some flowers a few years in succession.

No, orchids are not my business, unfortunately I may add. But there is already too much orchids nursery overhere in The Netherlands. But I consider myself a real orchid lover and try to bring the fun, beauty and love for orchids to others when and where ever I can. So this is a real good place doing that, so much people liking my posts  :rose

Thanks for loving my second ever try on an orchid haiku, that means a lot!
