U.S. Botanical Garden: Orchids

Here's some of what I saw on the 23rd, before and after the orchid class:

This looks to be a good place to end for now. There's still more and not just orchids, mind you! I'll try to get to those either this evening or tomorrow.

I would show off, too, if I were as pretty as 'Showgirl' is! What luscious pictures, GG. :)

Thanks! I just feel like orchids pose for pictures, that they like the attention! Silly me.
