|"...The falling leaves|
Drift by my window
The falling leaves
Of red and gold
I see your lips
The summer kisses
The sunburned hands
I used to hold
Since you went away
The days grow long
And soon I'll hear
Old winter's song"

|There are close to 1000 genra of orchids, |
of which 80% are found in tropical countries.

cross-polynization. This accounts
for the infininate repertoir of variaties.
