Orchids - A Delight at First Sight



These Orchids are on display at the Minnesota Landscape
Arboretum's Great Hall. They were a visual feast and an
escape from winter for a short while. I have included a
pastel painting which I was inspired to paint after viewing
these exotic beauties. Of course my painting or photos
don't do these flowers justice ... they are truly a delight
at first sight in person.
