Well I was up in air as to what to do today as it was a bit breezy, but warm. Longwood Gardens is having their orchid displays until the end of March, so I decided to go for walk and some photo taking. I renewed my membership for the year which went up $5, but they also give you two free tickets for your guests. It pays for itself after about four times.
Here are some of my favorite shots:
What you see when you enter the one end of the conservatory
A very tame squirrel. I had fun editing this for a friend
White columns of orchids
Begonias and Aechmea
Amazing Stargazer lilies
One of my favorite flowers-Blue Poppies
Hanging orchids and an archway
A trained Nectarine tree with blooms
Yellow butterfly bushes that smelled like exotic honey.
A moth-like orchid the Calathea
Take it from the Longwood gardeners-how to prune a rose bush-many only had one or two main stems!

I’ve been taking Olive leaf capsules for my blood pressure (think it is helping-thanks Dr. Oz). Here is an Olive tree
There are more photos in Flickr-just click on a photo above.
