Wisley Orchid

By pamelajean
Taken in the glasshouse at Wisley Gardens in Woking, Surrey.

The glasshouse, a major new feature at Wisley, was completed in 2007 and covers three quarters of an acre and overlooks a new lake built at the same time.
It is divided into three main planting zones representing desert, tropical and temperate climates.

I don't know if that yellow thing on the orchid is an insect or part of the flowerSmile.
Thanks go to Ivor (capto) for this information: "The 'yellow thing' is the pollen [pollinium], it's often hidden under the hood".


Many thanks for all the views, votes, and splendid comments for my Cormorant fishing boat abstract.

Pamela.

A lovely bloom, well taken. The 'yellow thing' is the pollen [pollinium], it's often hidden under the hood.Smile

Whenever I see orchids, they always remind me of the visit to Keukenhof Gardens on my holiday to the Netherlands back in 2018. They had a very large pavilion filled with orchids of every different species - I'd never seen so many! 😃 A very lovely capture and presentation here, Pamela 👍
