I Am Not A Fan

I am not a fan of orchids.  They are too exotic, too unreal, although, of course, they are very real.  Perhaps, if I had lived in a place where orchids did grow naturally, I wouldn’t have such a hard time with them.  
These orchids are from The Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden.  Enjoy!

Yes, this is really the color.  No food dye.
The colors, the shapes, what’s a girl to do.
The next thing I am going to do is ask an “orchidolic” why they are fascinated.  Stay tuned.

  1. I love orchids more than anything in the world. OK, that might be an exaggeration…. but I do love them. Honestly, some are a bit garish, but that is true of many tropicals. I prefer the subtle; the paler colors and the smaller petals. And my true love is the northern lady slipper. But yes, I am a die-hard orchid fan. I admit it.
