Well the tropical weather of Durban is a distant memory and the great new friends we made are 6000 miles away. We will never forget the amazing time we had but it’s back to work in the Writhlington Labs. Here we are at Tuesday’s Lab Club, sowing seed of Epidendrum radicans (the pod split in the school greenhouse on the day we returned) and replating seedlings of Sophronitis coccinea (see an earlier blog about that species). As you can see we are having the usual fun. It’s good to be home. The good news is we are going to keep blogging so watch this space for everything orchid shaped and follow us and the Writhlington Orchid Project through the coming years. We also have some good bits of the durban trip still to share with you.
