With their coy and dainty graces,
Lure us to their hiding places,
Laugh, O murmuring Spring!

The orchids cling, in rose and purple spheres;

Foredates its hundred years.

    • Welcome, Alienorajt, to ✿❀Queensland Orchid International❀✿, a global orchid society and diverse community with an international horizon!

      Those outdoor specimens in the top two photos are from the orchid genus phalaenopsis, many species and cultivars from which SoundEagle has been growing by the dozens on the balcony. Their flowers can be very long-lasting, each blossom can bloom for one month to more than three months! Indeed, their beauty is matched by their longevity. Some are also mildly fragrant.
