Macro Monday - Orchids

These gorgeous orchids were beckoning me on Thursday while I was at the fruit and veg market! The exact colours of my nectarines, although the name escapes me - some sort of Dendrobium I guess, of which there are hundreds!

I hope you had a nice weekend, we got up early to get to the balloon festival but due to dodgy weather and a late arrival (7.30am) missed the balloons - thankfully the good old Navy had an inflated balloon bobbing about. Between that, a quick run around the rose garden, some live music and dutch pancakes - the morning was saved. I hope your weekend was fabulous.

I love orchids! The colour is gorgeous. So need to get some flowers in the house to cheer us up with this drizzly weather.
