    the counselor had a book of orchid drawings that all looked like lady parts.  

    It was supposed to help people who thought lady parts were "dirty" or "gross" so that those who owned them would learn to appreciate them and their partners would be more interested in exploring the beautiful parts that aren't obvious to the outside observer.  

    I can never look at an orchid without thinking about that.  They are beautiful (but I always feel like I've been caught reading a smutty book when I'm looking at them in public).  

    Beautiful pictures Eddie C.  I want to sit in the garden and just breathe... it's been a helluva week - need to find some peace and quiet - NYBG looks like the perfect place (but I'm in Florida, so I'll have to see if Fairchild Tropical Gardens is having a show any time soon).  Thank you for this beautiful diary!
