Orchidelerium – Is this the inbuilt swoon of a sensation one experiences when they review their recent acquisitions? A name for the precursor of what is to become a person’s hobby-cum-obsession, or something that spans back over the millennia which has helped provide fascination, myths and focus in the arts. Find out what our club member Maria has unearthed in her research on orchidaceae and the arts.
