Brrrr... Today was cold. Winter is definitely on it's way. Here's some lovely plants to make you think of warm tropical places.
I love the unreal patterns some orchids have. It's as though they've been painted.
These yellow oncidium orchids are also known as Dancing Lady orchids because if you look at them closely you can see a lady in a ballgown dancing the night away.
Phalaenopsis or moth orchids are usually seen in white but I love this fuschia purple, so rich and royal.
