Orchids blooming in my garden part 2

in photography •  18 days ago 

This is a yellow-brown orchid which bloomed the other day in my yard. There was a reddish one and there was this yellow brown one. I am so lucky they both bloomed together so I could enjoy them!

This is a close up, so you can enjoy both the color and the detail of this flower.

Those flowers on that particular plant are nice, but what was more exciting was the buds. In time all will be flowers!

I think those are beautiful flowers. The great thing about orchids is that the blooms can last one month. They are amazing flowers!!! 🌺🌺🌺🌺For those of you who wish to know more about Orchids here is more information about these amazing flowers. The scientific name for orchids is Orchidaceae .
