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.
Always worth a trip to FPC! I’ll be out there later this week.
For the poinsettias?
I love orchids and these are lovely pictures! Dangerous plants show, I do wonder..looking forward to see more of the posts!
Thank you. Some of the dangerous plants looked obviously dangerous while others were sneaky about it.
You did a nice job getting some good shots. Crowded spaces make photography a real challenge.
Thank you. It was very close quarters with some of the flowers.
Orchids… a beautiful and delicate flower. You captured the delicate nature of them. Even if it was crowded.
Thank you 🙂 More coming up!
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.
Thanks. What do you suggest?
I would suggest a Phalaenopsis. That’s what a friend suggested to me and so far its worked out for me. Good luck.
Thanks. I tried two and well…. LOL
I have 3 that haven’t bloomed in 3 years. I’ve been persistent though and two of them are starting to get ready to bloom. Patience is a virtue when it comes to orchids. 🙂
You used the “p” word! LOL Thanks 🙂
Ooooo … may favorite kind of stumble. Lovely shots, Teri. 🙂
Thank you, John. More coming up 🙂
A Teri special… love it
Why thank you 🙂
We used to have an orchid garden in the Philippines. Mom wanted to have one in the US, but ….. they all die on us.
Some have luck with growing them inside…I don’t happen to be one of them.
Wow what a great find!!! Super photos!!!
I was a happy camper of course!
