Orchids, February’s Plant of the Month

An unusually cold February has me still thinking of tropical climes with this collection of orchids, some of which are blooming right now in my living room.

I was having some trouble getting my new camera to focus properly when I was in Singapore and ended up with a lot of blurry shots.

Then I saw a photography show where the guy had overlaid shots and so rather than throw out the blurry shots I overlaid them and got these images.

One advantage of growing your own orchids is the opportunity to take advantage of great light when it happens!

  1. Great idea to overlay them. I have some orchids growing in my living room too. I’m so afraid I’m going to kill them. 😯 They seem so delicate.
