The orchid is one of the most beautiful, if not delicate, flowers in the world. For this week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Purple we decided to use a photo of an orchid that we took last summer at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Obviously we prefer to capture flowers in their natural environment, but these were just too beautiful to ignore. There is a place for zoos and botanical gardens, bringing the beauty of the world to those who are not able to travel the world. We find the same inspiration in travel shows and books that describe the wonder of the world that we may never see, but hope to visit one day, if we are fortunate enough to have the opportunity.
And from our most recent hiking trip into the mountains of Colorado.
