Orquidea...

- by Selva Solimar

This week's theme: Orchids

The Orchidaceae - or orchids, are a diverse and widespread flowering plant that have a long history of capturing our imagination. Their blooms are prized for their beauty, colours and fragrance. Rare orchids are particularly sought after. Orchids are one of the two largest families of flowering plants and are certainly one of the most popular.


Art: Orquidea... by Artist Selva  Solimar
Orchids are one of those plants that are not easy to groom, grow and have bloom...however, my mom has a great green thumb! We grew up with lots of plants around us. Like most women, she loves flowers and has a real knack for making impromptu arrangements...no formal [or informal] training, whatsoever. *canya tell I'm proud?* We're working on a poetry book that she's been wanting to publish since she was fourteen years old! I've taken hundreds of fotos for her, in hopes of gracing some of those pages.

Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing prints of this series...Thanks for viewing!
