Botanical Garden Part Two

I had such fun taking pictures of all the flowers yesterday that I just couldn't resist showing a few more.


I wish I knew the name of this orchid, it was quite colorful.



And this was a gardenia (I think!)

les fleurs sont superbes, la promenade dans le botanical garden est très agréable, encore..

Flowers are superb, the stroll through the botanical garden is very pleasant, yet ..

the flowers are all superb ones, but that orchid is magic (and I imagine difficult to cultivate)
Ciao.

You are right Lori! Who could resist to such a variety and beauty? Flowers are an endless pleasure with heir gorgesous colors and their subtle smell...
This orchid is so lovely !

I think it is a gardenia. They are so beautiful and smell wonderful too. They are also very fragile and can't stand to be touched,

Very good post!
Gardenia is her beloved flower family, remembers our mother, had many gardenias in big flowerpots.
They so much beautifully smell!!!

More beautiful photos. You are spoiling us with these floral delights.

The blue coloured orchid is a Vandella Orchid (I think!)

I've done some checking. The Orchid is called Vanda Blue, not Vandella. I was nearly right! :)

Yes, last one is a Gardenia. Did you put your nose in it? It smells lovely.
Maybe it's because I am browsing on an empty stomach but it almost looks as if made of icing - you know, on a cake. Ok, time to eat an apple.
