    no wonder the insects try and get at those... it's nearly as icky as the rest of the pouch which reminds me of a brain!

    I never really noticed these details on the flowers so Thanks for the pic, Maria.


    cheers

    Oh... I like the raised bumps on the inside. I never really remember looking past the pouch on our venustum. Really cool!

    Cheers,

    You're absolutely right about the details. I have also always used to overlook the details. But since my husband uses my orchids as motives I discover more und more interesting parts on them.
