phalaeopsis aplenty

Highway 3B / Orchid World, Barbados
Located between St. Johns Church and Gun Hill, Orchid World is an orchid lovers paradise. The well-landscaped, meandering paths lead you on a self guided tour past waterfalls, through a coral grotto and eventually through a number of orchid houses. However, most of the exotic orchids are on display in a very natural environment, growing along the path edges. The six acres site was a former chicken and pig farm so the soil is well conditioned for spectacular blooms year round. It was a good way to kill an hour or two before heading to the airport for home.
