The 2011 Annual Ottawa Orchid Show was held this past weekend. Literally thousands of orchids were on display, and judging events were held for the many classes of orchid species. An art gallery was also present, showcasing the art of the orchid, ranging from stunning photographs to oils, watercolours to pastels, pottery and sculptures, all with an orchid theme. And if you were so inclined, you could take home orchid plants, orchid jewellery, orchid-growing supplies and reference books.
Years ago I grew orchids, but I ran out of time to devote to their upkeep, and so I stopped. But now that I have a new orchid to keep me company, who knows? Maybe I'll get back into growing orchids again - they certainly are eye candy, and each species has their own unique personality.
Happy Spring everyone !
