Orchids. We eat them, use them in cosmetics and medicines, and worship how they look. I’ve written about orchids in Belize, Bhutan, Britain, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Kosovo, Reunion Island, South Africa, Turkey, Zambia and other countries for the Sunday Times, Guardian newspaper, RHS The Orchid Review and BBC publications. Some examples are below.
