Dear friends!

The orchid year 2002 has come to an end. It was exciting at the sight of our frequent excursions and more than 10.000 kilometers. Now we have to sort and inscribe more than 2.000 slides ant to write our reports. And now we also will take more care of www.orchis.de. Perhaps you noticed, that our pictures of 2001 still are missing in our archives. Apart from that only few has changes. The reason is, that we are about to reorganize our data base structure which needs a lot of time. But that will be the only way to extend our homepage in future with acceptable expenditure. And we want to do that in view of the great resonance. Over 22.500 visitors just looked at www.orchis.de . Many thanks for that. Some time in winter we will present our homepage with additional archives and in a new version. Click at the picture attached and you will have a little foretaste. It's the wonderful and really rare hybrid between Epipactis palustris and Epipactis atrorubens.

For the friends of orchid photographie we added the new chapter "Orchideenfotografie". We are sorry but we had no time yet to translate into english.

Your help in this case is still appreciated :-) Feel free to mail us.

All the more we are very pleased that we found two orchid friends who did the french translation of the above article (LA PHOTOGRAPHIE DES ORCHIDÉES) and the excursion rapport of sicily. We like to reward Jacques Favre and Patrick Veya cordially for that.
