Roger Grier gave a very interesting talk on Wild Orchids at the November meeting. It was very well attended, which is always encouraging for any speaker. The talk was made enjoyable by Roger's down-to-earth outlook and he proved himself to be something of a poet, as all his orchid slides came with poetry as an aid to remembering their particular special attributes.
