Macro Monday "Orchids"




I was in St. Louis this weekend and visited the Botanical Gardens.  They were having an "Orchid Show", and it was amazing.  Such gorgeous flowers.

Mickie, these are just gorgeous!

I had an unusually large number of orchids bloom for me this year, and it was wonderful. Mine are grown indoors and always bloom just after Christmas when everything is lacking color, so it is especially wonderful.

Beautiful macro shots. I like the soft white borders in the first two photos.

These are divine. Oh, how I wish I could get them to live for me. My mother raised them and they were so beautiful. Hope the weather is holding out for you...it is supposed to be warmer tonight than the last two. genie

These are beautiful orchids. We visit the orchids in the conservatory at Biltmore each time we visit.
