Orchid Obsessions

Recently I went to visit my friends Terry and Doug Kennedy proprietors of Orchids n' Our Tropics. They are orchids growers extraordinaire. Terry is an accredited AOS judge which takes her all over the world judging. When you step into their greenhouse you feel as if you were in the Tropics 365 days of the year. On a weekly basis there is always something captivating in bloom. While there I also visited their lovely garden. Below are some of the stunningly beautiful orchids that were on display at the time of my visit. They grow and sell many unusual, and seldom grown orchids. Naturally,  a few of these unusual gems came home with me.
