We spent this afternoon looking at the stunning orchids on display at the 6th show of its kind held at one of Bangkok's largest shopping malls. There were also specimens for sale and we bought a couple of plants which now adorn the entrance to the living area.
In the previous post I was lamenting the possibility of finding artificial flowers in the lift lobby, but it's strange to say that from a distance these look as though they could be.
I am happy to say they are actually out of this world, so to speak.
Whilst the show isn't quite Chelsea, it's an excellent showcase for a species that attracts a huge following world-wide. It helps too that it's held indoors in airconditioning, allowing us to avoid the current phase of afternoon downpours.
