DAVAO'S PRIDE

The many varieties of Vanda orchids that are cultivated, propagated by the Orchid Society of Davao City. They are widely available for sale at orchid/flower farms here in the city, but you can catch them in bulk and at a cheaper price at Botanical exhibits during Kadayawan Festival every August and Araw ng Davao every March.

A flower's fragrance declares to all the world that it is fertile,
available, and desirable, its sex organs oozing with nectar.  
Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force,
all the optimism, expectancy, and passionate bloom of youth. 
We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages,
we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire.
-   Diane Ackerman,  A Natural History of the Senses, 1990, p. 13
