I stumbled into an orchid show

I went to our local conservatory because it was the last day of the dangerous plants show (more about them later) but no sooner than I rounded the corner from the ticket desk,  I was hit with orchidpalooza!  Some orchid growing club/association was having a show that weekend and not only were there orchids galore that were being judged but they also had loads of them for sale.  I wanted to buy one but it appears my thumb may be a bit green for many things but not for orchids.

It was a bit difficult getting some shots as there were so many orchids packed into a smallish area surrounded by orchid owners, orchid lovers and orchid sellers. By the time I got there the judging had been done so many of the orchids had ribbons on them; I just shot what I could without bumping into anyone or any orchids.

  2. I love orchids and these are lovely pictures! Dangerous plants show, I do wonder..looking forward to see more of the posts!

  3. You did a nice job getting some good shots. Crowded spaces make photography a real challenge.

    Orchids… a beautiful and delicate flower. You captured the delicate nature of them. Even if it was crowded.

  5. What fun!! They’re gorgeous. I have a brown thumb but have managed to keep 4 orchids alive for 4 years. Certain orchids are much hardier than others. You should give it a try.

    We used to have an orchid garden in the Philippines. Mom wanted to have one in the US, but ….. they all die on us. :/
