Happy Birthday to us!
This week the Orchid Photo Page celebrates its 20th anniversary. Much has changed in that time both on the www and in my life. I now live in the mountains of North Carolina and couldn't be happier. Stalking our native orchids this spring has been great.

What began as an experiment in html to share some of my orchid photos has become an archive of several thousand high quality orchid photos. The wild west days of the internet in 1996 were great fun. I began creating html in Notepad and used an editor calle Hot Dog for tables and frames. Hah! We had the great Orchid Safari begun by Mary Lois Greer and sustained by Kathy Barrett that was way ahead of its time.

Although I have not been making weekly updates since the move to NC I do intend to continue the OPP and add photos as I shoot them. This week's update consists of all 25 award photos from the Asheville Orchid Festival held last month. As you will see, there were many high quality flowers.
Onward and upward!
