I met the orchid lady today at Granville Island and this is what happened. The purple one has a thin layer of black fur on the stem and lower leaves.

My white orchids have purple lines on them. I love the black fur on my purple orchid. And stripes! It has stripes!

the colours, detail and sheer delicacy

I had to carry them home in the wind and rain and was impressed by their strength. The quality of the colours and as you say, detail, is really something else. They have quite the presence.

this is why I don't have money to visit you. I spend it all on fancy things. thank you for sharing the pure pleasure of them with me.

yeah the stripes are the defining wonder, they look decadent (for want of a better word).

I think orchids are all about opulence.
