Purple Orchids by mavart Purple Orchids by mavart
In the greenhouse at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, everything still wet from the rain, I snapped several images of the exotic hybrid orchids there (many of them named after female politicians or the wives of male politicians). These purple ones caught my eye.

Lucky you! I wish the flowers in my backyard were that amazing. You care for them or do they grow wild?

My sister-in-law keeps them here instead of her apartment, my mom takes care of them. My yard has many orchids as of now, but I think those are the only ones in bloom.

Thanks for the compliment, though it's pretty hard to take a BAD photo of flowers like these (though I managed a few).
