When I saw you had more orchids I rushed over. This one is also gorgeous and like other one it is the macro that really catches my eye. Great shots Denise.

Hi,Denise. Beautiful orchid photos! Thank you for using a Japanese picture in your blog's header. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Beautiful photos, I must go to a garden sometime

Those are beautiful orchids. Our son-in-law has a green thumb when it comes to cimbidium orchids and has pots and pots of them along the back wall of his house and to see them in full bloom is wonderful each year.
My mum also grew cimbidiums but I've not had any success with them much to my regret.

Valerie said...

Great header picture, Denise, and I love the orchids.

I'm happy playing with the app you mentioned ... snapping everything in

Happy Saturday.
