I showed Miltonia, the Pansy Orhid.......a favorite of mine, in the last post about the show. This however is another favorite, these are all Vanda Orchids and I just think they are stunning, I love the beauty of their shapes and petals, the colors are to die for. This purple beauty is called Trevor Rathbone "Banjong".
Also a little tidbit...did you know that the Vanda Orhid is also called " The Rainbow Orchid"?
You might remember I made tile coasters and mugs out of some of the photos of this particular Orhid...I just thought the deep purple color was so beautiful......purple also happens to be my favorite color.
This pink beautify is called - Vanda , Pat Delight "Pink Tango".
I also think this one was among my favorites, probably because I also love the color blue. This one again is a Vanda - Sansai Blue.
Well, that's it for the photos of this years show. I'll be back with more Orhid show photos in '09. This was my favorite show so far though so I'm not sure how they will top it next year but....you never know. I also have a feeling I'll be creating a painting from one of these Vanda photos, sometime down the road.
