TODAY'S FLOWERS - More Orchids


Thank you Luiz for featuring me today as your Guest Friend!

Here are a few more orchids from my my dear friends' garden:


This orchid, with it's tiny, lace like flowers, was a good 5' wide
and 4' high. In fact, it was so big, I could not fit all of it into 
the frame. It is worth enlarging to see the branches laded with
buds of promise.


Their shade-houses were extensive and full of blooms, in a season
when nature is winding down and there is a constant chill in the 
air, in John and Beverley's garden, you would think it was 
perpetual spring.


This one was such an unusual shade of pink and fuchsia.

Thanks to Luiz Santilli Jr. and his team, we can enjoy flowers all year round!
