On the outskirts of town there’s an orchid garden

The tile sign has the flavour of technical growers and is promising

In fact the past-Presidents tile is really nice too. I guess you have to hang around plant nurseries a lot to be into this stuff and I guess that’s not very moto blog, but whatever

I know that blooming season is a few months away but we’re interested to see how the place looks.  It’s laid out like an orchard with most of the orchids being displayed in trees

We’re really not into orchids but there are a few things are in bloom, like this Cattleya

And against the main building there were pots of Paphiopedilum, to many orchid lovers the king of them all (or at least Paphiopedilum rothchildianum) which was a good finish to this beautiful garden.
