I wanted to share a bit of what I did today which was go visit the Franklin Park Conservatory to see the last day of the Scary Plants exhibition (more on that later). As luck would have it there was also the Mid-America Orchid Congress going on which meant I got to photograph a lot of amazing orchids (more on them later too) long before the conservatory show that opens next year in January. I wanted to buy an orchid but I don’t think my green thumb extends further than growing herbs to cook with and philodendrons.
Here is a shot of one of the fish in the pond in the tropics exhibition room; one of my favorite spots at the conservatory.
Is that a Koi Fish Pond?
Or goldfish on steroids – LOL
Cool colors, nice compostition. Mostly plants find me scary…due to my lack of a green thumb and innate capacity to turn them brown.
Oh you would’ve loved some of these on display then…very fearless they were!
Lovely…and I don’t generally like orange
I like the reflections. They add depth to the image.
I like the reflecting balls too!
Get an orchid, Teri! They’re not nearly as difficult to tend than you might think.A phalaenopsis, “moth orchid”, is probably the easiest and will reward you with at least one beautiful spray of flowers every year.
DH has given me one each year and that’s about as long as they last too! I am not an orchid whisperer like you 🙂
