Orchids and other flowers

While at Lewis Ginter we took a look in the Conservatory to see the orchids in bloom.
I didn't get the names of all but got some pretty pictures instead

Inside the Conservatory neat the little thatched cottage were these tulips and white daffodils

walkway to the little thatched cottage

On this arbor is a pretty red flower, passion flower?  I think that is what it was called.  Closeup below

looking in the window were framed flowers  and frames made of twig.

I like the door decoration

A closer look. 

back to the orchids

I have a few more to post later.  Just so pretty.

So lovely, Betsy. I've never grown orchids, but I do love seeing them. Maybe one day. Love the idea of the thatched cottage.

Oh My Goodness.... We love seeing the same orchids in the Conservatory at Biltmore.... When I was a little girl, my friend's mother use to grow Orchids in her sunroom at their home... I loved them --even back then!!!!!!

Love the Framed Flowers.... Great idea and so creative.

Dearest Betsy,
Orchids always create a kind of heavenly atmosphere as they look so perfect and bring great joy.
Very well captured.

Thank you, they do bring joy and I have always liked them.
