They are so pretty - Tina & I both fell in love with orchids when we went to Sigapore, the airport is full of hundreds of varieties,

Wow sounds magic. I must admit alot of the foreign varieties do nothing for me but our native Orchid species are just beautiful.

On this evidence I can't argue.
The British orchids are under threat due to habitat loss.
Small country lots of people syndrome.

Yes Tavascarow, it's the same all around the world. We had a massive rally here years ago as a new freeway was being built & it was going to run through an area of bush where some rare Orchid species grow & the greenies won & the area fenced off but other areas aren't so lucky. You just have to wonder what else we are destroying. :>((
