Hothouse Orchids- Australian National Botanic Gardens

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.


  1. What an honor to be there to see them. I love all of them, but the second photo took my breath away, as in an actual gasp.

    Do you ever take a less than stellar photo? Nope. I thought not.

    1. Thanks so much Gorgeous Heart! This is a timely reminder for me that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' I took so very many picture of the length of the flower spikes and like close to zero of them as I didn't feel they accurately captured the magnificence of these gorgeous specimens. I included this as I though it would be remiss of me not to show one long spike. I'm so pleased to hear it bought some wow to your day. x
