Paphiopedilum hybrida


And after visiting the Botanic Gardens, I headed out to Rush, to visit my good friend Liga.

I looked at all her orchids...

Rachel, there must be some competition between you and Liga for orchids. The Oncidium you gave me last summer is making progress. I seem a bit impatient.

I don't think there is any competition between us, Dick. Liga is always helping me with tips on orchid growing. Sometimes there might be a slight bit of jealousy...

Beautiful orchid, Rachel!

The next day, after your visited Liga, I went to visit her too....    :-)   Ah ... so many rare and beautiful plants she has...  We walked arround her garden holding cups of coffee in our hands...  So much to see... so much to talk....  Ofcourse I went home with new plants from Liga...  :-)

I can't believe Liga is sowing no seeds this year, Violeta. It is not right. A crime against horticulture!

Now you make me lought Rachel,i almost to choke with my morning coffee after you last comment:)))

Thanks Violeta for so kind words,it was pleasure meet you like always!

  Ah,not so bad,i'm sowing seeds,because they just coming in my house from all different ways.You gave me some,Violeta brougt me one funny flower seeds,Jurga did same at last meeting,friends sent...and i order some too:))

   Dick,most of mine orchids is mini or small sizes,Rachel is so lucky that she can grow all sizes what she want,and ususally big ones have prettier flowers...so,no competition here.

  I just think here,how lucky i'm ,with so good friends from garden.ie...:)))
