Orchids at Lewis Ginter


The scent of orchids filled the air in the conservatory at Lewis Ginter botanical gardens in Virginia.  

 
 
 the bird of paradise to greet and such a pretty flower to brighten a rainy day
 
 
 
this was a surprise arrangement . Every year there is a new way to display these gorgeous plants
 corsage orchid
 
 
First time I have seen them displayed in fancy dress shoes
 
 
 
 
 
I must say I love shoes
 
 
 
 
 

 
 For some reason , this plant reminds me of my gladiolas I have blooming every year close to the same color
 
moth orchid - so called because of it's resemblance to  moths in flight
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I am sharing with make it pretty monday   at the Dedicate House
 
 
I hope to post the tulips tomorrow
