Orchid is the theme of this week at 52 Pick-me-up.
When I was a little girl, my father took me into the forest, looking for orchids. They were hard to find, Cephalanthera damasonium - we have long sought.
Every year we went back there, sometimes there were multiple and sometimes flourished none of them.
In a meadow we were looking for Orchis morio.
The wild orchids in Germany are very rare, inconspicuous and small. No colorful exotic flowers ...
That's why we call rare courses at the Universities "Orchid subjects".
Such as Caucasian studies, Onomastik or rare languages.
There are only a few students, a small circle. I think that will be familiar and interesting and an inspiring contact with the other interested peoples. This I have often missed in my life... -
I would have liked to study such a subject (but real I haven't make a study).
I am interested, for example, of Chinese writing or Old Slavonic language.
That's what comes through my head about orchids .
