[This post contains 15 Images] I visited a delightful orchid farm called Afri Orchids last weekend. As there are thousands of orchids on the farm, I was a little disappointed because I was hoping to see more flowers. It was then that I had to remind myself that it is autumn and not spring! Nevertheless, the flowers I found made the visit worthwhile, and besides, the coffee, pies, and toasties were delicious to eat in surroundings decorated with some of the best orchids. I purchased a few orchids and cannot wait for them to bloom! I am looking forward to visiting the farm in spring.
Illustrious orchid, harbinger of spring,
Your spectacular beauty sings!
A tonic to my eyes, a spiritual lift
Is your communication to me.

Here are some of the best pics I took. Enjoy!
