In Full Bloom --- Orchids

This weekend I gasped the opportunity to visit an orchid farm tucked in the rolling countryside of Indiana; a gorgeous greenhouse in full bloom. I slowly strolled the rows of laddering blooms in lavender, burgundy, butter, ivory, clover, and white.

The beauty of the scene was overwhelming. Orchids have been my favorite flower, and this weekend reinforced the notion of their simple and elegant splendor.

As words cannot do justice, I'll leave it up to the pictures to depict a story of my experience.
