As the sun touches these lovely orchids, they go from deepest purple to palest mauve. A joyful blending of shades.

What beautiful photographs I’ve seen in the past few days! I feel incredibly humble showing my own photos. I’m a beginner and opened to any comments or suggestions as I feel I have much to learn. I’ve always enjoyed taking photos but for the past 9 years, my camera has been mainly focused on my 5 lovely grandchildren. I’m so inspired by what I’ve seen on this site… I can only hope your amazing collective talent rubs off on me!

    Sandra, I have grown orchids, these are beautiful, such a lovely vibrant blue color. fav

  • Thanks so much Carol. Are they easy to grow? I had a few in my windows that produced constantly for about 3 years… then they all stopped at the same time and never bloomed again.

    Growing Orchids if you have the right conditions, light and humidity, is not difficult, they say people tend to overwater them more than anything else.

  • I’ll have to try again. I still have those orchids that are not blooming… don’t know what to do with them.
