It never disappoints, and today was no different. I met many friends, some of whom I haven't seen in many years. It was lovely to reconnect with them. The draw was the kaleidoscope of beautiful orchids in every colour known to man, with the unusual colours chocolate brown, and black velvet. The shapes, textures, foliage, scents, hues and sizes, completely overwhelm you. I like to call it, sensory overload. Orchids are alluring and mysterious conjuring up images of orchids thieves, high prices, and dangerous plant expeditions. There are between 20,000-26,000 species with over 800 Genera. Orchidaceae are one of the two largest families in the plant kingdom. They exist all over the world, with the exception of Antarctica.
