His national collection of dendrobiums have been kept together and taken on by a local chap. Dad lived life to the full, he couldn’t stand the idea of hiding away from the virus, but perhaps he should have done a little more hiding. It’s all so sad.

    Thank you, Lewis. We are all so sad to learn of your father's passing. He was such a kind and generous person. He is greatly missed.

    Sincerely,
    Bruce

    Thank you Lewis. I shall miss him greatly. As I mentioned in an earlier post he was a true English gentleman of the old school. I am sure his generosity will be much appreciated and those fortunate enough to own and see some of his orchids will know that they have a share of the orchid lore.

    Its true color is pink? Wow, I love how it looked on the photo, so gorgeous. Try getting a shot in a lighter background, I'm sure you'll get the right color then.
