This time this blog is not Not Just Orchids it's Just Orchids, (Motes Orchids) and we have to throw in the Singapore Botanical Gardens too. As many of you will know, when you come to Motes Orchids, as customers, maybe sidestepping a wheel barrow or a large dog, or waiting patiently while we scramble to find a pen- I will often remind you that, Ahem, for example, the world-renowned Singapore Botanical Gardens is also a customer. They love our orchids. Or, as Dr. Motes would say, "Are very interested in our breeding program."
Fast forward to now. We were watching the BBC news and there was the lighthearted bit at the end, Prince William and Catherine at the Singapore Botanical Gardens first admiring the white orchid named for Princess Diana and then being presented with the new orchid named for them both: Vanda William Catherine.
And we both declared: We know Who's your Daddy and Who's your Momma, too! The Singapore Botanical Gardens took one of our Vandas, First and Last and crossed it with Motes Toledo Blue and now it's William Catherine.
