These Orchids are a part of the Gardens research collection, not usually on display but were available to be viewed until the 6th of October.
The scent as you entered the hothouse was overwhelming. I noticed not many people who came in after me stayed longer than I did. It was mostly quick in and out visits.
The new lens that I mentioned in my previous post has arrived ( yesterday ) and already blown my mind! I'm having fun getting to know it and its capabilities and I'm looking forward to next week when the kids go back to school so I can venture out beyond my yard and put it through its paces at my own leisurely pace.
