Orchids

My peony love was a gratifying part of Beijing. I was thinking about that Botanical Garden (~700 species) at NY’s. The 2017 orchid ahow honors Thailand, world’s largest exporter of tropical orchids and home to 1,200 species. 



I hardly saw much (crowds jammed in a hot, airless, doorless glass tunnel gave me a claustrophobia attac, oh well!) But wow.

    Glorious! The orchid exhibit I saw in DC a decade ago remains one of my favorite museum forays. I love the paradox of their being ancient and resilient as a species but mysteriously delicate in each individual manifestation — a plant that looks otherworldly but has been a part of this one for millenia.
