Orchids in Bloom

Some orchids blooming at the Reynolda Gardens Auboretum yesterday.







I love how all these little orchid plants look on this stump. I believe I missed their bloom.

orchids somehow share similar shape... like a mouth opened so wide, with colourful lips, cheeks and tongue. Beautiful!!

Amazing orchids - never seen anything like them

Orchids are so beautiful! They remind me of Disney characters (I have no idea why!?!?!?). I had a few, but I just didn't have a good place inside for them. Plus the cats really like to bat at them!

Oh the colors are wonderful! I love the purple ones... one day I will grow an orchid. What is an easy one to begin with? Or does easy and orchid not belong in the same sentence?

I could look at orchids all day especially the slipper ones. Thankyou for sharing.

Every single orchid so unique and so beautiful.

I've never grown an orchid, but this post tempts me to try.

I love the orchid shots. I only have two of them, but can see why people love them so much. Can't believe how long the blossoms last...and the colors!

Hi Michelle, those orchids are so beautiful, each and every one in their own way! You certainly have a lot of them!
