  • Have you ever wondered what makes an orchid an orchid? Well, it is all about flower parts. In fact, most plants are categorized in the Plant Kingdom by their flowers.
    For orchids, it is the fact that they have three sepals and three petals. Many flowers have green sepals that protect the flower inside and then cradles it as it opens.
    For orchids, these sepals don’t stay green in color, rather they take on pastel shades of pink, yellow lavender or white, blending in perfectly and masquerading as petals.

    Have you ever heard of a “lone sheep”? Think with me for a moment about a typical flock of sheep in the nomadic Middle East.
    A typical flock would have a shepherd who leads them out into pastures where they feed during the day. He would then lead them to some source of water, and then back to an enclosed sheep fold at night. Suppose one of the sheep left the flock and wandered away on its own. This would create at least three problems for the lone sheep.
