Orchids at Longwood Gardens


Okay now…I make no pretense about Orchids…they are, thats all ….they are.

They are beautiful, they are unique, etc, etc, etc…but they are not my favorites at all. I took all these pics to share, so here they are……

They are very nice but I don't think I'd want to grow them. We all have our favs don't we lol. But they were lovely to look at :o)

I have never grown Orchids but they are easy to come by here. You can buy them boxed in a supermarket & they are not expensive either, considering! The florists here have a few different ones to the supermarkets. They are smaller & no doubt more expensive.

This was a lovely blog full of such wonderful colours & shapes. Orchids really are at the top of the plant kingdom!
