Orchids are common decorative flowers all over the world. No wonder, there are some in the Sigurta Gardens including this white orchid on my picture. The pink, smiling face belongs to my new friend - Walter (Roggeveen) from Nieuwegein, the Netherlands. I was lucky to meet and get to know him during the first European VT-meeting on 6 - 8 May, 2005. By a happy coincidence, we met again in downtown Verona a day after. Thus we spent next nice couple of hours seighseeing around.

Over 30,000 species of orchids!
Keep in mind that the family of orchids (Orchidaceae) is the worlds largest flowering plant family with over 30,000 separate and distinct species! But this orchid with white open petals and a bit yellow color inside is probably the most common flower of the family.
