Note Card Party - Orchids


I couldn't decide what photos I wanted to show on this month's Card Party.  I went through dozens of ideas, then I found these photos.

Gorgeous orchids at Longwood Gardens.  

All I did to edit them is to put the frames around them.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
  



 I love Vee's Note Card Party!  Join us won't you?

  3. Oh you can edit with abandon...feel free! Don't think that you're cheating to do that. I edited mine, too. In fact, I went overboard on the first. LOL!

    These orchids make a beautiful set of note cards. Truly wonderful. I like the borders around them because it gives that extra sense of coherence. Orchids are such lovely flowers...do you have any at home?

  4. Orchids, oh how divine!

    I about killed my only one orchid -my youngest daughter saved it and now it is doing much better.

    Apparently I was suffocating it with wrong soil and the way I had replanted it. Yikes, didn't know!

    You have stunning orchids, they're beautiful!!

    Stay cool!
    Joy!

  11. Have you read The Orchid Thief? It's a very interesting book about the subculture of orchid obsession.

  20. They would make a beautiful note card set, and even more, they are so lovely they could be framed.

    BTW, I have no idea why, but your blog didn't update on my sideboard.
    UGH. At least one other one isn't updating either. I hope blogger works it out.
