When I last went two or three weeks ago, they were starting to get things in place... today is the official opening of the annual Orchid Display and so I set off to make sure I was there as soon as the gates opened (wind and drizzly rain not putting me off) Luckily unlike last week, I made it (disaster of an attempted journey, replacement bus service, broken down trains... gave up and came home)
So, I spent a very happy couple of hours among the carnival Brazil themed Orchid Display... 200 photos later I'm home.... sit back and enjoy!
I would have loved to have been able to get in amongst them for some close ups!
and these white ones were teeny!
and these steps leading up from the rhododendran glade (they are coming into bloom already)
hope you enjoyed the trip - it was fabulous there today!
