Orchid Show

Carl (Artistic Balance) took me to the New York Botanical Gardens Orchid Show. What a treat. I had no idea there are so many varieties and colors of orchids. An example of this is when a fellow attendee exclaimed, "Look at the big, beautiful pansies!" Closer observation revealed that they were actually Pansy Orchids. Thanks, Carl, for a wonderful day.
Of course Carl is the photographer, but I happily enjoyed just point and shot with my tiny Canon after my Fuji failed me.
It is very difficult to say which orchid was my favorite, but this one hit my eye.

Orchids Again

Flush with my new found success as an orchid grower, I find that the orchids look especially enticing this year showing an abundance of colors and sizes. I have succumbed to their allure and added another to my collection. Wish me luck.
