Ok, so on Wednesday, the Waikato orchid Society held its monthly day meeting-first one i have ever been to! Im always at the night meetings. But seeing as it is school holidays, i thought "what the heck" and went for it. And boy, was it nice! although the weather was a dampener, it was still good fun. Unfortunatly, this particular members ' house we went to was way out of town, and she also only has 10 or 11 orchids. But i suppose, you dont need to have a 3000 strong collection to join an OS!
Here are some of the plants, most of them i can name, but a few are without their latin names.
Heres one: The Ghost Tree or Handkercheif Tree, Davidia involucrata-looks really eerie in the night with a slight breeze and the moon shining on it apparently.This is of the family Nyssaceae, but some give it its own family, Davidiaceae
Here are some Scillia hispanicus, now Endymion hispanicus. Spanish Bluebells
And some of these in pink
And here are some Aqueligia
and a rather pretty Clivia
And now here is a Leptospermum, sorry, dont know anything else about it apart from the fact part of its name is "Wiri", and sorry about the crappy shot...:/
Here is a beautiful patch of white irises.
All lovely!! Thanks for sharing!
Love the blue on the Scillia hispanicus!
Very nice Jordan. What a wonderful world we live in. Here we have you posting spring flowers and plants from NZ and from the Northern Hemisphere we have the wonderful pictures of autumn colours. Another reason I love OT.
Wonderful shots of those flowers, Jordan. I especially liked the row of white iris...It looked just like the ones we have here in Texas...Betty
