What a lovely tour that must have been! Don't think I've ever seen an actual Vanda before---I've just heard them mentioned year after year by the Rose Parade announcers describing all the flowers which were dismantled to provide proper colors for each scene.

They're like great big violets, almost, and really lovely.

Just beautiful! I was at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens recently and enjoyed the orchid show going on there, too.

Sounds like you had such a wonderful time in DC, Linda.

The orchid room is indeed a wonderful place to wander around in at the Botanical Garden. Their orchid collection is the largest one I have ever seen!

Did you see the tea bush in the conservatory and the tea exhibit in the education room?

Gorgeous! My love of orchids is certainly growing and these are so beautiful, I would be tempted to bring another one home.

Gorgeous photos! Since I can't seem to keep an orchid alive, I especially enjoyed seeing the beauties here!

Aren't these beautiful - I have never been good with orchids but I love them!
