Hong Kong Flower Show IV: Orchid

Taiwan is probably one of the largest orchid production countries in the world.  The science of growing orchids is so advanced now that most orchids are propagated by cloning in a Petri dish in a nice clean laboratory.  We just have two flower shows in Taiwan concentrated around orchids.  One is the major trade show for the orchid merchants and the other is Taipei flower show, which acted as a prelude for the 2009 World Flower Show in Taipei.  We did not get the chance to go to either of them.  Instead, Grace visited the Hong Kong Flower Show last weekend and she took these photos of Orchids.  It rained the day before, so you can still see raindrops on the flowers which made them appear clean and fresh!

Orchids are the most beautifully refined and exquisite exotic flowers I know. All my neighbours have the most wonderful orchids. Only I don't have the skill to breed them. I am very sorry about it!! Thanks for your visit! Have a nice week!
