Today we were out doing a little geocaching in Villa Park, IL. and we came across an Orchid Farm so we decided to go in and take a look around. WOW!! This place was amazing. I have never seen orchids in such a wide variety of sizes and colors.
We learned that orchids are started out in these small glass bottles and that each bottle holds up to 35 baby orchids.
Then they are transplanted and nurtured in the greenhouses.
Hold onto your hats, because you are going to oohhhh and awwww over the colors of these orchids.
And how about these....
And my personal favorite.....
Can you BELIEVE that blue? Isn't that WILD?? I am SO sorry I didn't buy one and I might have to make a trip back there. It was just about the prettiest flower I have ever seen.
I honestly have never paid much attention to orchids before, but I now have a real appreciation for them. Which color did you like best?
