TODAY'S FLOWERS ~ 21 Orchid Show

All photos will enlarge with a simple click.



Today was the last day of the Winter Show of the
Murray Bridge and District Orchid Club, of which
I am a member.



There was also an Orchid Photo Competition and I was
lucky enough to win the trophy with this charming little
Orchid photographed in my shadehouse coming first,



and this beautiful Orchid shot at last year's Spring Show
coming second.



I personally loved this little Slipper Orchid as well



as this pretty pair of slippers anyone would like
under thir bed.

I took quite a few photos which I will post now and then.

To Luiz Santilli Jr. and his team of eager beavers, thank you
for providing us with this venue for showing our flowers.
