Default La Canopée Orchidées

Last week while visiting my partner's family in Brittany in France I went to La Canopée with my SIL, an hours drive from where they live.

It's a small nursery but jam packed with plants that all look in excellent health, and the greenhouse is clean and tidy. Most on the greenhouse is off limits to customers, but I spent an hour poking around looking for interesting plants for myself and novice grower SIL.

Since they do Lycaste breeding, I got one of their crosses as my first ever Lycaste. I got Lycaste Oratrix a nice yellow primary hybrid (campbellii x xanthocheila)
Second plant I got was Phrag Sorcerer's Apprentice x wallisii.

And just for fun, some photos of the local beaches only 15min from where my in-laws live. The water is a bit cold, but it's peaceful and the beaches quite empty compared to the more touristic south of France. There are some great snorkeling and diving spots around there.


Completely orchid obsessed and loving every minute of it....

Lovely! I was in St Malo area, Mont St Michel, and Cancale a couple weeks ago. We went swimming but it was chilly 😅

Thanks for sharing those photos! Seeing that beautiful greenhouse makes me miss the ones we used to have in Michigan that are gone now. The beach scenes are beautiful!
