I have a row of orchids on the windowsill in front of my work bench, and never cease to be distracted by them when they are flowering. I love the delicate shapes of the flowers, and find the gorgeous colours particularly inspiring.

Because the foliage of the different plants is almost identical, I often have a nice surprise when they flower, as I have forgotten which one is which colour!
