    There was a little something going on in my head as I named the diary. Of course the title credit goes to Robert Lewis Stephenson but as I walked through this fantasy of orchids I noticed a distinct lack of children.  My third favorite annual show at the NYBG, behind Kiku and the Orchids is the annual holiday train show. Parents take their children to that but for this glory of nature the children seem to be left at home.

    Now I wonder, which would be more fascinating to the children?  I know I would have loved to see it when I was young but in all of my visits I had few opportunities to observe the children of today.  I must say that I believe that I appreciate the natural beauty even more now that I understood the horrors the world contains. Perhaps the parents are right and I'm wrong. You can be too young for orchids but lucky for me, I never was.
