The orchids in this and your Dragons post, are they all your own orchids Cindy? So stunning!
They are not mine. They were in a flower show and selling out as I was photographing them! დ
Wow! So beautiful! Ochids are my favorites flowers.
Thank’s for share, Cindy.
Have a lovey time.
Very pleased you enjoyed and I can easily see why they are your favorites დ

Wow, so many beautiful photos, Cindy! The first photo looks like a Tiger Lilly but that’s a guess. ❤️
I love the name. Tiger Lily. Perfection! დ

They’re beautiful, Cindy. Are you growing orchids?
Grandma (dad’s mom) grew orchids. They would summer out in the greenhouse, come inside into the laundry/utility room during winter. The Dino cat loved the plants. When we brought home Susie and Pinky, the orchids didn’t last long. Pinky would pull them from the bark media they were growing in. Grandma didn’t get upset or anything. She loved the cats more.
This makes me smile. I’m with Grandma. I love my cat more! She sounds wonderful. Stay safe and well all of you დ
So beautiful. We are lucky to see their beauty. Thank you.
You are so very welcome Laksmi დ

Beauties all…and I haven’t been able to leave a comment for a while Cindy, I’m back in the silence again…attempt no 6 🤣❤️🙏
Yayy! I think I found it…I smiled lots when I clicked submit 🤣❤️🙏
I smiled too seeing your wonderful comments. You touched my heart my friend დ
I am so very sorry this is happening to you. Other people are telling me this too. WP does not make it easy for us does it. Deleting comments and followers is awful. Thank you so much for persevering Mark. Your kind comments mean a great deal to me. Stay well and take good care დ
Thank you kind lady, I most certainly will keep persevering. How could I miss so many lovely pictures of the world. It’s like cream and jam scones, you just have to keep looking to see if you can have another one 🤣❤️🙏
Smiling! You make me very happy I blog my friend.
An inspirational message with these beauties
Happy you found it to be so Derrick & cheers to you my friend დ

Awww…. So appreciated Lynette. Thank you my friend & cheers დ
Merci beaucoup mon Ami Sheree. Enjoy Paris! დ
Suppose it defies logic, but seems wheresoever you turn your gaze, something of beauty is right there. You bless our eyes by how you see.

Thank you 4x’s! Best to all of you & take good care დ
Orchids are lovely and also mysterious in ways. Have you ever seen a monkey orchid?
That is soooo incredible! Thank you for sharing it Steve დ
Hi Cindy. Are these beauties on your property?
No. These beauties were at a flower show. They were for sale though, and selling out FAST! დ
And we have this silly idea that the flowers are putting on their beautiful colored clothing just for our pleasure. 😉
We just are extraneous beneficiaries! 😉
Grazie mille Kelly დ
These orchids are beautiful!
So happy you liked them Josh დ
Pristine colors in those petals. Beautiful photographs, as always. ⭐️❤️
So appreciated Jessica. Thank you very much & take good care დ
Gorgeous flowers, great photos Cindy!
Ah, thank you very much Eddie & cheers to you დ
You’re very welcome Cindy. Thank you!
How lovely. Unfortunately I have not been a success with regards to orchid growing.
I emphathize. It is so frustrating when plants don’t respond to our TLC დ
They are really beauties.
Happy you like them & cheers to you Marie დ
Thank you Francis & hope all is well with you! დ
They are lovely Cindy. I’ve never had much luck with Orchids. But…I haven’t given up and hopefully the two I have will bloom again someday.
They do that. Hunker down and then randomly bloom again. Moody I guess or wanting more sleep დ
Yes mine seem to be in the “big sleep”.
Hopefully spring sun will wake them like Sleeping Beauty!
These are beauties to most definitely ring in Spring, Cindy. Gorgeous, up-close photos…the best kind!
So happy you enjoyed Bruce & thanks much for letting me know დ
Pure Beauty, I recognise most of them , as I have seen themall in Kew Gardens. 🙂
Amazing that you do! The Kew is spectacular დ
The intricate colors and patterns of the insides of these are just fantastic! Thank you, Cindy, for such wonderful closeups.
You are so very welcome Kathy! I am most pleased you enjoyed & cheers to you my friend დ
I love Orchids and these are absolutely Wonderful.. <3 xx
So kind of you Sue & so appreciated too! Thanks much my friend დ
Such fabulous photos, Cindy…
Honored & humbled. Thank you very much & cheers to you დ
Pingback: Delicate Beauties~ — (It seems as if I reblog most of Cindy’s posts. I can’t help it. Look at these gorgeous orchids. I mean her pictures are too beautiful to not spread around…enjoy them.) | Rethinking Life
So appreciated. Thank you დ
Did you grow them, Cindy?
I do. But these were not mine. A man came up to me when I was photographing and said, “My orchids are better than these!” 😉 😉
That’s funny. Typical guy, always making comparisons. Right?😂
Love’s true essence, grows silently, in rocks, in the cliffs the beauty resonates. The beauty, strength becoming, love’s delicate fragrance, in breathless blooms! A lovely share!
Incredibly beautiful poetic response. Thank you Warren დ
Ahh living life in full bloom! Great shots as always, my friend
♥️ (❦ ᴗ ❦ ✿)♥️
Smiling AGAIN! Thanks to you დ
Don’t mention it!
♡(ﾐ ᵕ̣̣̣̣̣̣ ﻌ ᵕ̣̣̣̣̣̣ ﾐ)ﾉ
Grazie Jennie დ
This is a wonderful selection of photos to share, and matching words! it’s astounding how many species exists of the Orchidaceae family!
You clever person. Did you know there are 28,000 species of orchids? (I just googled it!) 😉
I did not, amazing! Wonder why (appreciatively).

Buon fine settimana e un sorriso,silvia
Che commento meravigliosamente poetico Silvia! Grazie sinceramente amico mio e sii sano e salvo დ
Grazie a te, buona domenica
The orchids are splendid, Cindy. You captured such clear detail too. Hugs.
Thanks much Teagan & take good care my friend დ
Wow! What a beautiful selection of strong yet delicate looking orchids, I can see why they were selling out fast, Cindy!
I am sure they were all gone by the end of the day. There were rows upon rows of empty tables where orchids once preened! დ
They were gorgeous!
Beautiful and glorious colours! 😀
Thank you very much & cheers to you დ
These orchids are really amazingly beautiful, Cindy, thanks for sharing them, you also are an extremely wonderful photographer. 🙂
You touched my heart with your kindness. Thank you sincerely my friend & take good care დ
I always think of orchids as having faces. 🙂 Great job, Cindy.
Well, they clearly do!!! 😉 😉
Oh such gorgeousness you’ve captured. 🤗🥰
Thanks much Alison. I was just enjoying your Canberra post. I think I’m ready to go back! დ
Absolutely gorgeous, Cindy!
Grazie mille Eugi დ
Aye, beauties indeed.
They are dressed to impress! დ
All very beautiful and such incredibly clear photos. Stunning again!
Aww…. Thank you sincerely Georgina დ
Wow, just gorgeous. I love orchids! I have two orchid plants (yet again) that have failed to show new growth so far this year after blooming beautifully last year till near Christmas when the spent blooms finally fell. <3
Sometimes they go dormant for a spell and then surprise you and return. I hope yours do! დ
Thanks. I’ll keep you posted. 🙂 xx
Simply, gorgeous! Such vibrant colors. <3
So happy you enjoyed them Carol & thanks for stopping by! დდ
I was sad to give away my beautiful orchids when we became an expats but now came back and wish I could get them back haha!
Oh yes, I can so relate. I wish you could get them back too! Maybe you can start again….. დ
Gorgeous all, Cindy. I think the orange ones are my fave. 🙂🧡
They are beauties aren’t they! Happy you enjoyed Jane & cheers my friend დ
Thank you for sharing some of these beauties with us. They are all amazing, but that top picture is my absolute favorite. <3
Yes. Mine too and the deep red one from the other post. I should have bought them, but I was too busy taking their photos დ
Absolutely stunning, Cuz. And surely they grow in your back yard….! Right !!!
Laughing…. Not quite! The Holler is a bit rough for growing orchids outdoors. Indoors, another story, but these beauties were selling fast at a orchid show დ
A rainbow of colors, so pretty! 🌸
Happy you enjoyed & thank you დ
We’re having a very slow start to Spring in our area of the world, and it was refreshing to see these glorious flowers.
So happy you enjoyed & cheers to you! დ
Can smell them just by looking at your photographs!
Wonderful! Thank you & cheers დ
Orchids make me think of my Mum she has a kitchen window full of orchids that bloom at different times of the year.
How wonderful! I would love to see photos…. დ
I’ve never put a photograph in a reply I must find out how to do it and get Mum to take me a photo, we bought her two new ones for Mother’s Day this year and she said we had to stop now because she’s run out of room lol.
How nice! Cheers to all of you დდ
One of my favorites!
Mine too Christine დ
Wow! These are all so splendid!
So appreciated. Thank you Bridgette & cheers! დ
