Today's Flowers #32

My friends Luiz, Denise and Pupo run the Today's Flowers Meme, check it out. Come and join with your flower photos. Sunday at 7 GMT is the post time.

My youngest daughter grows Orchids in her riverside office. Her office overlooks the Cuyahoga River. How lucky is that?

This is the color that is blooming this week. She said another one will bloom next week. This one has two more buds to bloom.
What a beautiful flower that puts on a great show.
I love the delicate bloom as it shows its true colors.
Try to visit some other great flower shows above.

Orchids are just spectacular and some of the species are just fantastic in their scent and can literally scent a huge room for many days!!
This particular one is amazing in its color combination and your daughter is very fortunate and skillful in raising such beauties!

Hope you are well today!

I am always speechless when I see the white colours of orchids - whiter than white, purer than pure. So beautiful!

Leora said...

Beautiful, Tom...I love orchids. The mother of one of my childhood friends grew orchids--and I was always so impressed. Beautiful colors in this one.

Wow orchids are something else! Did you know that there are species of them that are so precious that only bloom for a few hours of the year in the rainforests - pretty special!

I had a hothouse full of orchids once and think they are amongst the most beautiful flowers you can get. Lovely pics Tom.

Arija said...

When you can get them to flower, they are very satisfying and last as long cut as on the plant. Nine shots, especially the last one.

George said...

Tina said...

These are beautiful orchids...and I love the whites on whites with that little splash of color! Such a complicated flower to cultivate!!
You did a nice job with these photos!!

Tess said...

Pure and white. I love orchids, not all people has the special gift to nurture flowers because my flowers died on me. Its embarrassing because friends keep giving me flowers like orchids and they will not see it again the next time they come for a visit. I hope to see more of your flowers again. Hope you have a wonderful week!

Great photo. I just love orchids, but they don't love me. I get an instant headache when I get in a room with one...but I love to take pictures of them and almost as soon as I leave the room the headache is gone.
