C'est une magnifique orchidée, je n'avais jamais vu celle-là .
Ray: Ce n'est pas une espèce commerciale, Martine ... une orchidée locale de la jungle près de Village.
A gorgeous specimen, and a beautiful image - great idea on the angle!
Ray: It is a beautiful, local species, Elizabeth.

Good grief! I am green with envy but having said that we here in the UK are entering our own orchid season right now, and if I survive being with the Stooges and Master Trim later this week I too will attempt to record these remarkable flowering plants..
Ray: This is not a cultivated species, Chris...but, a genuine local species from the nearby jungle. Na's brother dug it up and gave it to me...I potted it, and it seems to be thriving, with at least 300 blooms at the moment!

Oh wonderful! I'm seeing some sort of alien creature (no.. not you..) sticking out its tongue to us Earthlings before it consumes us all. ( I really ought to get out more....)
Ray: You must step off your bike occasionally and smell the flowers, Alan...they are your friends! smile
Certainly an orchid relating to our provincial flower - the lady's Slipper. Gorgeous! Give us a shot of the whole plant with 300 blooms please.

That little thingy hanging out there ...
A really nice if somewhat unusual plant.
Exquisite is the perfect word Ray
