Orchid Beauty

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food, and medicine for the soul.”

~ Luther Burbank




With so much snow occurring in many areas of the US this time of year I thought some views of beautiful orchids would be a nice change. These are my photos of orchids I've seen growing in the Denver Botanic Garden within the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory. The conservatory was dedicated in 1966 and awarded Denver, Colorado, Landmark Status in 1973. The Tropical Conservatory is one of the world’s most unique displays of exotic plants from tropical and subtropical regions.

Orchids are beautiful and we can grow them in our gardens here. Love the Quotes. I do hope this year improves. We have the aircon on today as it is very hot and humid. Wish I could send some warm but not too much because you like winter.

Angie said...

Pat - I am such a sucker for an orchid, much less MANY of them!!! It's interesting that you should mention how many days left to Spring - we are planning a couple of trips in April and May, and I have started wondering what will be happening in my garden while I am gone! But in the meantime, our high tomorrow will be 13 degrees, and the snow is swirling around outside the windows! Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos AND quotes with Mosaic Monday!
