    Aren't these orchids beautiful? They are about $29 each at Sloat Garden Center...a bit pricey for my budget, except for maybe one a month. But, with my horrible blue thumb, I don't think I'd evene attempt it.

    You must have all of the exact same flowers! See you on Tuesday, about 9AM. Hope we find some great pictures.

    Our biggest orchid growers in South San Francisco long ago made its demise for modernization. They used to have the best selections.

  22. Stunning! I love orchids, but have not seen many over here.

  23. Glynis -
    Orchids really seem to love the foggy climate here.

  24. Poetic Shutterbug -
    We'll have to do another jaunt to Sloat when we visit Abby next time.

    You should have seen my friend and I in that garden center, clicking away with our cameras. Of course, we did buy a single orchid.

    I was amazed that garden center had so many varieties of orchids. The least expensive was $29.99, I believe.

    I'm sure there must be so many orchids in the Philippines. When I was in Singapore, there were orchids everywhere. It was so incredible.
    The "red dancing lady" is so beautiful.

    They were all so beautiful but I didn't notice that any of them had a fragrance.

    Denise -
    I just wish I had the budget to purchase all those orchids!

    JM -
    It's funny - people have different favorites. I guess it's good there are lots of orchid varieties.

    Luna Miranda -
    If only I could successfully grow orchids - but to pay thirty dollars for a plant ( or more ), only to kill it, doesn't appeal to me.

  25. Larry - of all the pictures I've taken in my lifetime, that header photo is my favorite.

    Everytime I look at those daisies, it makes me feel happy.

    Marguerite -
    Glad you like my orchids and the daisies. Flowers add so much to our lives, don't they?

    There are sure a lot more varieties than I ever imagined.

    Kamana -
    Orchids are very special flowers. They have such beautiful faces.

    Robert, art of the Almighty! I guess we could hardly improve on that. Even if one is not religious, it's hard not to believe in something divine when you see beauty like this.

    So glad you like my orchid photos.

    I was so pleased the pictures turned out so well.

  26. These are some of the orchids we have at the Belle Isle Conservatory. They are incredibly stunning!
