A nice start

The Lady x Monkey orchid hybrids are looking extremely good this year and have brought a splash of purple-red to the slope. I counted about 250 hybrid flower spikes today …. well, to be frank, I lost count around 200 but there are plenty to impress anyone who goes up there. We have 1 flowering Lady orchid (there are more in leaf), nestled in the front of the hybrid patch but the Monkey orchids seem to have been held back by the dry spell a few weeks ago and, although they are coming along, they will be a week or so before they flower.
