Those 2 look as though they are nestled together beside a tree on a sharing a secret.
Love the color purple!
Great shot.

Wow - those are gorgeous! And I love purple, too!

Ron Scheer said...

Quite the flamboyant orchids. How large were they?

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Dawn. I never though about it, but you're right. They do look like that.

Thanks, Bag Lady.

Ron, I don't recall, but they're nowhere near the size they appear in the pic.

Nero Wolfe would have been proud of that one.

Pretty indeed!

Hilary said...

That's a luscious looking blossom.

Leah J. Utas said...

David, I didn't know he was in to orchids.

Bossy Betty, it's quite striking.

Hilary, good way to put it.

They have rabbit ears!
That was just what I needed to see as my surroundings get browner and browner and drier and drier--some tropical purple.

Mary Anne, I never saw the ears until now.
Glad to brighten your day.

I love purple, too. All flowers are gorgeous but orchids have such mystique. They're peaceful looking. That is really a great photo.

David Barber said...

Beautiful colours in this one, Leah. Love it. Apologies for my lateness in commenting and my lack of photo. We have visitors at the moment so time is something I don't have. :-)

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you, Cheryl. Orchids have quite a personality.

David, thanks. Enjoy your guests.
