Flowers Flowers Flowers

Yesterday while I was out running errands I remembered that there was an Orchid Show at a local nursery. So I grabbed my camera…. I have just loaded up a few here… for more check out my Flickr page. There are a couple that are not Orchids, but I just couldn’t resist.
There were some pretty amazing specimens. Some as small as 1/4” and I saw a black one, but it did not photograph very well.

Before I left the nursery, I spent a few minutes looking at some of the other plants. I found a lime green and red Coleus and took a picture, considering doing something…  al a Susan Brubaker Knapp, her blog is Blue Moon River.

I really liked the water on the Prayer Plant…

And lastly a Gerbera Daisy… and it had just been watered, again I liked the water droplets on the petals.

How pretty! I went to an orchid show once, and it was so fascinating! I bought an orchid, but it never bloomed. One of my co-workers in a lab long ago was a big orchid fan, and he'd bring each plant in when it bloomed to share. Thanks for sharing your pics!!

Beeeutiful!!!! But then you already know that I love your photographs...Of course, I don't know which one is my favourite, so I'll choose ALL of them!

My daughter and two grandsons are visiting. I have told her about your photography, and we looked at your blog together today. She has recently taken a photography class (just for fun -- she is an elementary teacher by day) and commented on the clarity and color in your photos. She was wondering what kind of camera you use. These are just wonderful.

I love them all -- orchids are a particular favorite for me. I think the prayer plant photo is the best -- if you don't use it, can I?
