It's All About The Orchids

The University Botanic Garden in Cambridge is holding its Orchid Festival and once again there's a wonderful display of these exotic flowers in the greenhouses. It's on till March 11th if you happen to be in the area.






















And if you're not in the vicinity then I hope that you've enjoyed these few photos.


Take care.

  12. An orchid festival seems like exactly the tonic we all need as we begin to tire of winter.

  13. A fine orchid collection. Over here, orchids used to be rare and expensive, but now they are available for sale in every grocery store at about the same price as tulips. Remarkable.
