ABC Wednesday - O is for...

...Orchids

As well as the show gardens I've been featuring this week, the RHS Show in Cardiff had 2 marquees filled with specialist nurseries exhibiting their wares. The David Stead orchid display was a masterclass in displaying choice specimen plants to their best advantage and deservedly won gold.

Noodle your way over to Mrs Nesbitt's place for other choice ABC photographs.

  9. The RHS show must have been wonderful to attend. The orchids would have been great to see.

    While reading your May Day post and thinking about the songs you learned, Walpurgis Night popped to mind. I haven't thought of that for years ... I remember being fascinated as a teenager by this.
