Saturday Snapshot: Orchids!

Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. All you have to do is "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky on [her] blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of anything as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give is up to you." All she asks is that you don't just post random photos that you find online. (Click pictures for close-up).



Yesterday was my 21st Wedding Anniversary.  I've been angling for these blue orchids for quite a while now...ever since I first saw them on display at our local store.  Hubby earned bonus points for the anniversary by showing up with these lovely flowers.

Happy Anniversary! They ae very exotic. I've been looking at blue flowers as well, but they're common wildflowers - bluebells, in a wood, http://chriscross-thebooktrunk.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/witches-woods-and-saturday-snapshots.html

Happy Anniversary-these blue orchids are quite beautiful. I have never seen blue ones before.

I love the kitty photo-the first one-for a random photo I thought it came out well-his coloring and the rain drops are what I think made it a good shot.

Congratulations on your wedding anniversary.
Our anniversary was yesterday also.

The orchids are beautiful. I did not realize that particular orchids can be in blue.

Cheri and had attended 2 orchid festivals in San Francisco in the past.

I know I'm revealing my ignorance here, but I really had no idea what orchids looked like prior to seeing photos of them via Saturday Snapshots. They are so pretty, and that blue color very unusual!

I'm lovin' that shade of blue!!

I've seen blue orchids like these and always wondered about the color. Is that a natural color? I can't think of any other blue flowers, except blue hydrangea and I know the acid in the soil affects the color of those.

Lovely, and happy anniversary.
I've been looking at blue orchids lately too, they are so beautiful. It's just that we have several orchids already, and I try to be sensible. Sigh....
