Warm Wishes

Warm wishes on this first day of winter! With today’s solstice, the planet spirals forward into another season. If you prefer balmier weather, some tropical inspiration may help to heat things up.

Orchids are great antidotes to the cold and grey. Dave snapped most of these beautiful pictures at Pacific Orchid Expos in recent years. Next year’s Pacific Orchid Expo is only two months away, and then spring is just around the corner. Until then, enjoy these warm wishes.

    How strange! The orchid in the second pictures looks like a rocketship! Is this real? I’ve never seen this before.

  4. Marc Says:

    Hi Yeva. Thanks for your comment. Yes, they’re all real orchids, including that strange Masdevallia in the second photo. Unfortunately I don’t know it’s full name so I can’t be more specific to what kind of Masdevallia it is.
