Orchids at the Chatuchak market in Bangkok.

The evening market at Chatuchak has many shops selling various kinds of orchids. Because of the pandemic, the market seems very quiet and things are very slow. We could walk slowly taking our time looking at the orchids.

I feel sorry for the vendors who travel quite far to get to the market. I could see about twenty people walking around looking at plants. Prices have to come down a lot these days.

One has to be quite patient and dedicated to look after orchids. They flower once a year and they are delicate plants. So, I have very few orchids. Several small orchids had died off in my garden because the summer heat could be extremely hot. Orchids donโ€™t like extreme heat.

I wish I could have more spare time yo look after my orchids and move them to a better location for them to thrive. The garden would look so nice when they all blossom in winter months!
