Cover Illustration: The Four Ladies in Lace

Orchids are some of the most fascinating flowering plants on the planet. I love to look at them and even grow some of them. One day at Foster Gardens in Honolulu, I came across these four beauties shimmering in the bright midday sun. The intricate burgundy pattern reminded me of delicate lace shawls. It wasn't hard to envision them as four beautiful ladies adorned in fine lace.
