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.

Beautiful, beautiful! I do not have a “green thumb” the best I do is growing cactus. Well, I am in Florida! Thanks for the beautiful photos of a beautiful delicate flower.
