After all the snow and freezing temperatures that we’ve experienced over the past few months, it was nice to catch a welcome break when the sun came out and things warmed up sufficiently for us to take an almost leisurely stroll at the Chicago Botanic Garden this week.
Add to that the pleasure of seeing the ‘Asia in Bloom’ orchid show and it turned out to be a most enjoyable day. As always, the Garden has done a splendid job of displaying these gorgeous blooms.
Each year, the show has a slightly different theme that gives it a fresh appeal and affords the photographer a chance to capture a whole new array of images.
Of course, the orchids are the main attraction and the colors and shapes are truly out of this world, reminding us that nature is indeed a miraculous gift for all to enjoy.
The show is open through March 25th so I hope you’ll take the opportunity to visit if you’re in the area. For more on The Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily Post go to Out of This World
