April 5, my friend Kim, son Matt and I attended the annual Orchid Show and Sale at the Enjoy Centre in St. Albert. I took over 300 photos but don't worry, I'm not going to share ALL of them here! I've chosen a selection of some of my favourites, the most unusual and most dramatic of those I've seen. For the most part I've left out commentary so you can just scroll through and enjoy. I hope you do.
I don't know about you, but this looks like a tulip. Anguloa, commonly known as tulip orchids, is a small orchid genus closely related to Lycaste. This genus is found on the forest floor at high elevations from Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador to Peru. There are nine species of tulip orchid. (I learned so much as a result of attending this orchid show.) Source: Wikipedia
