Climbing Out of the Weeds

Not literally, of course. "In the weeds" is a terrific expression. It's restaurant slang for overwhelmed. It also applies to an argument that becomes lost in a discussion of minutiae. In the weeds is pretty much where I've been since the launch of our annual Orchid Daze display. Everything else in my personal and professional life is swept aside while we do Orchid Daze.

Finally yesterday I downloaded 1583 images from installation and the finished display. While the smoke clears above my PC here are a few other images from this week at the Fuqua Orchid Center.
Dendrobium densiflorum 
 March is a great month to see Dendrobium species in the Orchid Display House.
