I think these might be my favorites. I've only seen them at Krohn and the DC conservatory, but I love them, their color and their shape!
Have I mentioned how much I love orchids? Yes? Okay. Well, I gotta say I love Antoine's understanding of my orchid love even more! He followed me as I rushed over to the orchids, then proceeded to point out all the not-so-obvious ones I'd missed. Then he sat patiently while I went back through the room a second time and took even more photos! He's so patient. Thanks Tran, for being awesome!
Next up, the desert room. Usually it's not one of my favorites, but having the new camera made me a little more observant and I noticed some really cool plants that I'd normally pass right by!
Next up was the Avant Garden room. I gotta say, this is one of the best spring shows I've seen in a while there. It was jam packed with flowers of all different colors and variety and I love the addition of the koi pond. And it smelled heavenly in there! Seriously, it felt good to just go in there and take a deep breath.
Love this little bonsai and the way the sun was hitting it.
Last but not least the two main tropical rooms.
This plant looks so scary and alien, I love it!
I had a blast at Krohn, playing with my new camera! In a couple weeks they're having their annual Orchid Show (March 15th and 16th), I've never been but I've always wanted to go. This year it's happening!
Stay tuned later in the week for more fun day goodness! Hint- the poster will involve food and an overlook of the city!
