Orchids . . .



By Barbara Falconer Newhall

There’s nothing I can say about these orchids.

Except that they were growing in Thailand, on a farm, where there were so many feats of blossoming splendor that by tour’s end Jon, Christina and I were wailing, “No! Please! Not another stupendously beautiful orchid! Get me out of here! Take me to the snake ranch!”

Where, of course, the snakes were beautiful too.

Another flower story — “The Trouble With Daffodils.”
