One of the Orchids at Kew yesterday.

Orchids at the New York Botanical Garden’s 2013 Orchid Show “The Orchid Show” (Bronx, New York)—March 6, 2013.

 

The 2013 orchid show was designed by Francisca P. Coelho, Vivian and Edward Merrin Vice President for Glasshouses and Exhibitions at the Garden. Coehlho is best known for her plantsmanship and key role in the design and development of high-profile shows in the Conservatory.

 

Orchids have long been a symbol of love and beauty. Grown by enthusiasts for their sheer elegance and fascination, they're also favored as either a corsage worn on the dress, or as a wristband at many proms and special events. On many occasions, from weddings to conferences, sprays of orchids grace the tables as decoration.

During a rainy day you can always shoot the orchids of your wife ;-)

The description on the label says Butterfly Orchid but if not, a correct description will be much appreciated thanks.

The word Orchid derives from the Greek word 'orchis' which means testicle, after the appearance of the roots of plants of the genus 'Orchis'. [wikipedia]

   

always beautiful and intriguing.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to leave a comment.

I can't respond to all the faves but do respond to all the comments. Thank you!

   

Cypripedium calceolus is a lady's-slipper orchid.

  

For nearly four centuries, gardeners and botanists have collected the species to near extinction: as early as 1629 – when the species was first documented by botanists – it was being collected for gardens, and such the uprooting has continued ever since.

By the second half of the twentieth century, just a single plant survived in a secret site, following the loss of a second population near Leyburn that fell prey to collectors as late as 1956.

Only recently has the species' fortunes in Britain been reversed, following an introduction programme that has planted out cultivated seedlings in as many as 16 sites in a girdle across northern England, from Morecambe Bay to the Durham shores.

  

Thank you for ALL your faves and comments, M, (* _ *)

Bad back has prevented any outdoor photography lately so I've had a go at some indoor. Daughter bought me a backdrop for Christmas - need to practice with lighting as background looks grey on some of the Groggs

Have a wonderful day!(^!~)...:)

my friend's mum has a garden window full of beautiful orchids and this is the one I like the best!
