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.
