    ► Ghost Orchids thrive in hot, moist marshy environments

    ► Seasonally, you may find Ghost Orchids in bloom along the Mastic Trail and Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park

    Joe – love the photos 😀 Makes me want to get our parrot back but he’s happier having a mate and all and Derek’s toes are much safer without him! They are so beautiful in their natural habitat! Again thanks for sharing the photos 🙂
