A Walk Through The Orchid Garden

Shira and I had some time last night to make it back to the Botanical Gardens, but this time go into the special orchid garden section. This is actually a paid part of the gardens, I have to admit, I was just a tad bit skeptical about paying to see more flowers.

I was, of course, totally wrong. The garden was more than worth it. Orchids are beautiful flowers, but perhaps more impressively, you can hack them. That is, invent new breeds that have interesting characteristics. So we saw orchids of all different colors, and sizes and even ones with different smells. Most impressive.

Here's a shot of one of our favorites - I'm not even sure how I'd describe this color scheme.
