There are the traditional orchids…

controlled-chaos

and the not-so-traditional   (which remind me of  the term ” organized chaos”) .

Individually  dainty….

waterfall

or a  dramatic family in all its glory.

Some with stunning color…

drunkeon-slumber

Some in a drunken slumber…..

little-aliens

Some that resemble a gathering of aliens…..

flying-nun

Some peaceful, orderly and tranquil…….

Some jolly and eager to tempt u into  a closer look….

Some like a graceful dance in the breeze…

Some bold and daringly different   (is this really an orchid?)

whirleygigs

Some flighty…

open-wide

Some close-knit, all  with intricate detail….

Some with eye lashes……

But all to be enjoyed ……

and let me not forget to  mention the magnificent  fragrance  that fills the room as you meander among these incredible  flowers!!!

Lastly – a quick trip thru the Climatron and a sighting of  a permanent  resident…
