I could probably do 10 posts from the hundreds of photos I took just on orchids alone! The variety and abundance of blooms took my breath away! The lighting, however, made it tricky to capture them in full glory, not to mention waiting for the crowds to thin out as I snapped each view and angle. Thank goodness patience is in my nature...most of the time!
Quite terrestrial looking this one...
Really cool were the bromeliads and other tropical plants.
It's no wonder this bloom-laddened specimen won 1st Price
Dendrobium 'Spectabile'~described as grotesquely twisted, I found it quite unique and beautiful. A collector's plant costing upwards of $100!
This was much more impressive in person...a deep, deep purple, almost a blue tone to it.
Not true to nature, but this 'orchid tree' was quite impressive!
A big 'thank you' to all the friends who've popped in to say hello. I always enjoy your visits and comments!
Our best weekend yet to do some yard recon and really get excited about what's blooming...just around the corner!
