Did you know that 8% of all flowering plants are orchids? Well there are quite a lot of them here in the Princess of Wales Conservatory for the Orchid Festival at Kew Gardens…

Warm, humid spaces, with a tropical soundtrack too, filled with all manner of floral delights, thousands of orchids and other exotica. The show began at the weekend and runs until the 9th March.

If a picture paints a thousand words, I shall leave you with some reading to catch up on here with these photos, taken on a bright but (outside) chill Tuesday afternoon.
