    Too many pages on this thread for me to turn back and discover whether all these are in your back garden Zain ! ( joke) although I guess they are , relatively speaking - at least you are 8000 (?) miles nearer than I am . It is great to see these and be reminded... my wife's health, alas, makes any further visit byme to orchid lands impossible.
    But Durian trees too ! The nearest I have ever been was a series of hotels with a notice in the lobby -" no durians past this point". Only the population of your country, and its neighbours, plus travellers, will understand what all that is about. For the benefit of westerners who have not been there , durians "taste like heaven, smell like hell" ( or a rather horrible public lavatory, it's said ).
    Keep up the good work Zain ; what would be really great would be to see these "wild" orchids actually in flower.
