Friday, June 5th, More than a dozen Master Gardeners from The Raincatcher’s Garden visited the Tarrant County Demonstration Garden for helpful ideas and then traveled to D&B Orchids, the Orchid Greenhouse run by Dr. Dotty Woodson and her husband, Berry Woodson.
We were overcome by the sight of approximately 8,000 orchids and the botany lessons taught by Dotty that day.
Meet some of the stars of our visit to D&B Orchids.
It was intoxicating. Orchids everywhere! This purple orchid was growing out of a pot, one of many, hanging from the rafters of the greenhouse.
And just when you thought you had found your favorite, another would steal the show.
Dotty’s husband was the recipient of the Herb Hager Award for Hybridizer of the Year from the American Orchid Society for his hybrid, Phalaenopsis Jose Carreres. Hopefully, Starla snapped a picture of it that we can share.
If not, looks like we will have to make another trip to D&B Orchids.
