Orchid Warning! February 24, 2011

In honor of the upcoming Amherst Orchid Show (Feb. 26/27) here are a couple of shots of a bloom in my kitchen.

First, a full-on “portrait:”

…and then a close-up, looking down its wee little throat:

This cut flower was a Valentine’s Day gift from my Susan, and is still hanging in there despite my legendary Brown Thumb.

By the week’s end I’ll have more shots, thanks to the growers and collectors who will be exhibiting on Saturday.

‘Till then… enjoy!
