Oh what a beauty!

Orchids are gorgeous, I'll admit I've never tried to grow one...but I never knew there were so many different species (about 22,000!). Here's some more info from Wikipedia...

Orchidaceae are cosmopolitan, occurring in almost every habitat apart from deserts and glaciers. The great majority are to be found in the tropics, mostly Asia, South America and Central America. They are found above the Arctic Circle, in southern Patagonia and even on Macquarie Island, close to Antarctica.

So is this the word you needed in BINGO?


  1. Jeh your pictures are beautiful what kind of camera are you using. I love taking pictures of birds and flowers but never get the outcome you do Thanks so much Suzanne

  2. Thanks Suzanne,
    Unfortunately I am no photographer. These pics are gathered from several public domain photo sites. I wish I could take pics like those that have been so generously shared.


Hi! I'd love to hear from you, so...leave me a message!
