    The Orchid Trail

    I recently discovered a rather amazing place about 20 minutes from where I live that has more orchids in their collection and for sale. For anyone even remotely interested in orchids it is a must see if you are ever in the Raleigh, NC area. Anyway, here are some of the pictures I took to show what I considered the coolest orchids on display. Hope you guys enjoy!

    Sweet! Excellent variety! I could see losing one's paycheck frequently. heh Thanks for sharing your journey w/ us, Mason.

    The "random ant plant" appears to be Dischidia pectinoides for any who might be interested.

    I hope they have this catt checked. Color break like this would have me very worried -- it is often symptomatic of a virus.
