Your country is so rich in orchid species. Thanks again for sharing.
According to some orchid books I read, they said Vietnam is home land of 800 orchid species but from my thinking it should be much more than that. I do have around 400 species now in my garden but compare to some of my friend my garden just like nothing.....
Apart from that Vietnam is a long country and the habitat from the North to the South so different and orchids have almost in all areas.
Hope that one day in the future some one can help to make comprehensive data base for Vn's orchid.
I've been to many part of Vietnam and I also saw many interesting thing, this is one of those.
Villager use a "Bomb" as a bell or drum to alert everyone in the village when have any thing happen.
Sometime I saw a "Bomb" really big, around 3m long and people just use half of that one to as boat to plan some kind of vegetable.
love all ur photos and adventures. keep them coming and thanks for sharing
Thnaks for sharing, Chu. Love all your photos.
Orchids all over the place...and what a wonderful fence in back of the bomb/bell! Love all of the pictures, Chu...Thanks! Betty :-)
This season also a lot of species blooming in the wild but I can't arrange my time to have one trip. This weekend I will travel with my wife and my son to a one of the orchid paradise but I'm sure that I will not have much time for my hobby. I'll try to take one or two hour for that.
