I have one orchid about to bloom, and I noticed a second plant trying to flower. I don't often have luck with orchids.

Hi Caroline.

ALL of your recent pictures and adventures are an inspiration to me... as always... someday, someday soon I'll have time to dedicate to the art of photography like I'd LOVE to do... life just keeps on happening despite my desire to pursue my photography dreams! :)

The orchida which I have been growing are not bloomed yet. They are still tiny buds. I think that I will be able to photograph them and post them soon. Last year when they were blooming, I photographed them with my 18-55zoom lens. After that I perchased a 60mm micro lens.
