photoblog image Orchid

Orchid


It is quite a while since I last photographed any flowers so, having an Orchid being mistreated in the kitchen - very little water, cooking fumes and it just keeps on flowering - I though I would have another go at a flower picture - and here it is.

Great picture Les..and the framing is excellent.

Well that shoots down the contention that orchids are a delicate flower, hard to grow and maintain. This image of your orchid, Les, is so beautiful it makes me want to have one in my kitchen too.
Les Auld: This one is pretty hardy Beverly, thanks for the comment.
Ah, that's why mine died - I looked after it too much!!
Les Auld: May not work in all circumstances though Pamela, thanks for the comment.
