Orchids On Display

These pictures are from a trip to the conservatory before it was closed due to the quarantine and social distance requirements put in place due to Covid-19. The  conservatory was in the process of preparing this display for an event that was scheduled in the next week.  I could see into the back room as other orchids were being prepped to bring out.

This is just a small sampling of a truly amazing display.  It was still quite cold outside so this had an added benefit of being  refreshingly warm inside.  It was a very overcast day but between the sun  behind clouds and only coming out occasionally and the glass  dome enhanced everything.

So close your eyes, take a deep breath of the faint floral fragrance and feel the warmth in the building and enjoy these beauties. My favorite from this small group is the Pansy Orchid as one I had never seen before.
