Orchidaceae – It’s not easy being green

But oh my goodness the fragrance these green lovelies had was fantastic!!  You could sense their presence as soon as you walked around the corner and into the cove where they were on display; such a sweet perfume.  I just wanted to wrap myself in a blanket of them but of course that wouldn’t have gone over well with the horticulture folks.  So I had to restrict myself to just sitting on a bench next to them and having a moment of sweet smelling zen.

Is there a certain scent or fragrance that takes you to your special happy place?

  4. We really need cameras that allow for “scratch ‘n sniff” so that we can all experience what you did. Lovely photo.

    Beautiful, Teri. I hope that one day you can get to an orchid farm/ranch. They really are something to see and when you enter a greenhouse filled with a species in full bloom and fragrance, it is just incredible!
