    I love both of these but the bellina is lovely! thanks for sahring your photos and the history of the planys. i envy you living where orchids still grow in the wild. Your post points out how important it is that we become active in seeing that natural habitats that orchids thrive in naturally are preserved.

    These are both incredible! It is great they found a long term "protected area" at your home and we are able to see them on this site.

    This bellina has less than the 'ideal' form being more longish than round, but it makes up for it by being quite big - 2 1/2 inches tall x 1 3/4 wide ( 6.5 x 4.5 cm ), and it does have a nice colour.

    That bellina Yew is stunning and the cornu cervi is beautiful. I am impressed and would be rather sentimental about having 'chids' from the original cornu-cervi and plants as old as some of yours. What wonderful friendships. AL
