LOVE ... Orchid Extraveganza at Longwood Gardens

Scott and I travelled to Philadelphia for opening day of the Philadelphia flower show last weekend, but made time to also see the Orchid show at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. Scott LOVES orchids! As a young man, Scott worked for the president of the American Orchid Society - and he knows almost everything there is to know about them. It's cute to watch him educate me on the subject. While he walked around in amazement, I took some art shots of the orchids that I'm going to whip into something special for him - and share with all of you!!

I know I'm not a professional photographer - but these shots came out ok. There was so much to photograph at Longwood Gardens, it's hard to get a bad shot. Some shots of the whole picture:

    I am so envious of your trip to Kennett Square. Love everything there from Longwood to Brandywine Museum to Winterthur to the shop you recommend. Have to go again after your inspiration.

  2. Great pictures! My favorite is the one in the huge white pot with the orchid colored flowers.

  3. Mother Nature is certainly a work of Art and I sincerely think your photos do her justice. They are wonderful Artie. ºÜº
