Orchids and Passion

                Orchids seem to be easier to find in Hawaii, and the annual orchid show elevates them to art.


    Each one a winner.

The dedicated local orchid growers were not as fanaticical as  John Laroche in Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief – but those orchids were from Florida.  Hawaii’s Kaimuki Orchid Society show offered a variety of starter plants, but I demurred and did not succumb to orchid fever – might be time to reread the real story of those passionate orchid collectors.
