This picture was taken during my visit to Tugu a small town/village in Indonesia about 4 hours up north of Jakarta depending on traffic. I love the delicate soft purple of this orchid with the greens and grays in the background. The place we stayed in Tugu is a huge house with the huge garden's belonging to the family of my martial arts guru and it was amazing to be under that vast sky surrounded by all the flowers and greenery. I have had more blessed days in my life than I admit... These orchids inspire me to be humble and down to earth, delicate yet strong, to survive in where life has allowed me to be...
orchidaceae are cosmopolitan, occurring in almost every habitat apart from glaciers. the world's richest concentration of orchid varieties is found in the tropics, mostly asia, south america and central america, but they are also found above the arctic circle, in southern patagonia, and even two species of nematoceras on macquarie island, close to antarctica.
