Orchids

Residents and visitors to Saint Paul or Minneapolis, Minnesota, should not miss the Como Park Conservatory. This monster green house contains a myriad of tropical plants and occasional great exhibitions. Erika and I are fond of orchids. Although we can understand becoming passionately involved in orchid growing, we are not orchid growers. The photographs were taken during last weekend's St. Paul Winter Carnival's orchid show. I was not able to gather identifications of these flowers and welcome any input from my readers.

  1. Isn't the Conservatory a marvelous place! A must visit every time we are in MSP to visit our kids.
    2. looks like a Miltonia, 3. one of the oncidiums, 1 and 3 either a phragmapedium or paphiopedalum (the slipper orchids).
