Purple perfection

By Kaxxie
Hi everyone

Orchids are such intricate and fascinating flowers. This is one from the orchid festival at Kew Gardens in 2020. I have rarely seen purple orchids and thought the colour was stunning.

Thank you all for your votes and kind comments on yesterday’s sloth image and to
John (tralfamadorean) for his precious UA. You are ll greatly appreciated.

Take care

I know you have some orchids but you come in second to Jackie. There is no room left on our return staircase window ledge.

Very nice photo of a beautiful one.
