On Orchids

1) Orchid at National Gardens, Singapore

2) orchids – Toronto Orchid Show – Feb 12/13, 2011

I am a self-professed orchid lover. Not a fanatic like some but I do enjoy looking at orchids, visiting orchids and growing orchids. G would perhaps say I take better care of my orchids than him but that is simply not true. Seeing that it actually snowed here today – despite spring being in the air – I thought I would share a number of photographs of orchids I took whilst in Singapore and again at the Toronto Orchid Show I attended with Blee in February.

Finally, a photo or two of my much loved orchid here at the condo that has once again bloomed and is showing two stems – one with what will be 11 flowers; the other, with an amazing 19 flowers once they all release. Gotta love it.
