Day 74 - Orchids


I took my camera with me today on our monthly Costco trip hoping to find something to take a picture of. Thankfully they now have tons of potted flowers out for sale. I took a bunch of pictures and settled on these.

I love orchids! This is an unusual color combo, too! Must go "shopping" for flowers since it's still too cold here!

Melissa said...

These are beautiful. I need to start finding inspiration in the places I visit, very creative!

Your comment about the eye lashes made me laugh, that was one of MANY photos I took for her lashes. I have this talking tom app on my cell phone and I put it on there for her and she luckily finally sat still long enough to get that shot. It was a miracle! :)

What a great pop of colour! So needed on this rainy grey day. Love how there is so much detail in this shot. You would never know it was taken in Costco! lol. Amazing.

Very pretty! Great photo! I bought an orchid about 2 months ago. The flowers on it lasted for about 2 weeks then all fell off, so now all I have are the leaves and stems. Not sure what to do with it now. :)

I saw orchids at our Costco the other day and never thought to take pictures of them...I also didn't have my camera with me because I was wrangling two kids, but you've given me inspiration to take it with me next time I shop kid free. I agree too that you'd never know this was taken indoors at a place like Costco. It's amazing how you can find such beauty in the strangest of places! BTW, I LOVE Costco!
