Photo Challenge – Orchid Extravaganza Part II & Weather Vane Wednesday

This week’s weather vane is atop the Longwood Gardens Conservatory. The Orchid Extravanganza featured orchids in a variety of unique settings.

These orchids were in a planter in a long walkway filled with blooming acacia.

A waterfall complete with orchids.

A bright cascade of orchids alongside two walkways, one behind and one in front. This display was really lovely.

Thank you to these bloggers who took part in last week’s challenge. Take a look at their great weather vanes.

The Photo Challenge: Each Wednesday, I post a photograph of a Weather Vane with a short description of where it can be found and any history connected to it. The main focus of the challenge is the photo of the Weather Vane and the location. The challenge can be Wordless if that is what you choose. If you would like others to see your post leave a link to your blog in the comment box. You can also tag the post #weathervaneweds. If you place a link to my post in your post you will create a pingback that will appear in the comment section. The challenge is open all week for comments and posts. Thanks so much for taking part in my challenge.

Many thanks to Cee, of Cee’s Photography, for including this challenge in her listing of WordPress Challenges. If you love challenges take a look at this page and while you are there check out some of Cee’s terrific posts. Thanks Cee!

      I grow phaleonopsis…they are easy. They just keep going on and blooming every year. I put them on the porch in warmer weather. I agree…it helps bring a taste of spring.

  3. Lovely orchids! I finally found a weathervane on my way to church! It’s the first one I’ve seen in this area. Unfortunately, I can’t even see what it is, because we go whizzing by on the interstate. At least I know my area isn’t completely deficient.

      I love it Anne…I just had an image of you leaning out the car window trying to get a photograph. Please don’t! I horrifies me to just imagine it. One day you will find a weather vane and you will have you phone to take a photo. I’ve seen some on churches…I’ll feature them one day I hope. Take care my friend.

  6. I went there last winter with one camera and lens and no tripod because I thought it would be a hassle. I also learned that sometimes the light inside is too bright in some places so its worth it to keep moving. All in all it was a very good day even though I didn’t get any award winning pictures.

      I know what you mean about too much light. That has also happened to me. Try an overcast day if you get a chance. Sometimes that grey creates magic. This year I took an almost unearthly appearing photo on an overcast day.
