The Softer Side of the Cactus House

We continue on at The International Peace Gardens and in particular in the Cactus House.
No these are not cacti, but they were in the same building.Most of these are some type of Orchid,but I have no idea what the last two are.They were growing on some sort of succulent.
I will refrain from too many words,as you enjoy these beauties.









Thought For Today:
If I could tell the story in words I wouldn't need to lug around a camera.

  1. Your photos are beautiful, as usual. We've seen similar orchids at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. They are always a delight.

  7. The orchids are so beautiful and delicate looking. But I love those last two, as well. The last one almost looks like candy to me.
