I just love the Pansy Orchid, one of my all time favorites. There were also lots of beautiful Vanda Orchids this year, another favorite and I'll be showing those next time. This Orchid is Pacific Cloud....gee, I wonder why?
Close ups of the beautiful hanging arrangements.
I loved some of these photos so much that I created products for my new website with them. I used some of the Pansy and Vanda Orchid photos to make mugs, framed tiles, jewelry boxes and coasters. The images came out so crisp and beautiful on the products.
As we were walking through one of the rooms, we came upon this Dendrobium species, hanging right above our heads. I had to get some overall shots and close-ups of it.
Finally, a pretty group of Phalaenopsis Orchids, sharing a big pot. What I really love about the Orchid show is that they nestle the Orchids in with all the other tropical plants that are a staple in the conservatory. It makes for such a beautiful display.
In other news, in the next few weeks my new and shall I say.....much improved website will be up and running. I have to thank my husband Chris for this because he is doing it all for me and is very talented with web design. Another plus of this scenerio is that he works cheap. : )
Also, in the upcoming weeks, look for a new line of original "seed packet" art on masonite board. I'll also be turning these paintings into cool shirts and tote bags....a fun adventure.
