An orchid odyssey

We begin 2016 with a stroll around the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens.

We begin 2016 with a stroll around the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens, where my best friend and I went in search of orchids to love and admire. We were not disappointed. For in the Tropical Forest gardens, “An Orchid Odyssey” had quite a selection of blooming orchids on display for us to enjoy. Here is a sampling of some of the delights we found.

  1. Lovely. I’ve missed you.

  2. After an exhausting day back at work – I’m getting too old for this – it was refreshing to stroll through the orchid, to just stop for a moment or two and take in the strange beauty. Many thanks.

    1. Blooming orchids do have that effect on me too. It’s when I’m down in Homestead, where all the orchid nurseries are located that these blooming beauties have a draining effect on my wallet.
