If you're looking for something out of the ordinary this weekend, the Orchid Society in Cape Town is sure to entertain you with a visually breathtaking mid-winter show. This time of year yields many different species and hybrids. Society members will offer duplicates of their collections for sale, answer any questions you may have concerning their hobby - orchid culture - and they'll tell you a bunch you didn't know about these fascinating flowers. Adults pay R15 entry and children R10. Food and refreshments will be available. The show runs this weekend 30-31 July 2011.
