There are so many beautiful orchids - I can see how people can become obsessed with them.


I am reading a book about orchids - 'The Orchid Thief' by Susan Orlean. It is a novel based on a true story. I am learning everything I ever wanted to know about orchids as the novel has a lot of factual material. It reminded me of when my sister and I went to Selby Gardens and saw so many beautiful orchids. I think I have the right orchid matched up with the sign. You have to look real close to see the dove and if you don't see it I have the wrong picture.
