I Can’t Kill Paper Orchids

These orchids I can’t kill, because they’re part of a coloring book. In lieu of water and fertilizer, I’ll need crayons. And while I appreciate the subject matter, I think I’ll leave the coloring to a visiting niece or nephew. There’s a helpful glossary in the back for all the big botanical words in the orchid descriptions. Since there’s no pronunciation guide, though, we might be in trouble when the kids ask us how to pronounce “Coelogyne pandurata.” Pass the purple crayon, please.

Orchids of the World Coloring Book, by Virginie Fowler Elbert, Dover Publications, Inc., New York, 1983.
