three sisters

When we were at the Botanical gardens, the orchid area was amazing. It is so interesting how many different varieties. The light that morning was perfect.

This stem of pink orchids, reminded me of my sisters. Sometimes, three girls can be very challenging. But having two sisters is just as amazing as all the different varieties of orchids.

Over a month ago, we were in Washington, D.C. for a little vacation. While we were waiting to go into the apitol...we had some time to waste. We decided to go to the Botanical Gardens. I was quite sure my husband was not going to like it, and went along just to be a sweet guy.
Much to our surprise, the Garden proved to be one of our favorite spots. The yellow finger-like plant above is used for mentally ill patients....where can I get some?
Two days later, I had to go back and take my big camera so I could take some pictures of the amazing orchids, and alot of other beautiful plants. All these were taken with my Cybershot....stay tuned for more "big" camera pictures.

I really love shutterfly studio. Besides manipulating my pictures before I upload them...they have two buttons I love! Oil painting & Graphic poster!!! Super cool. This one is the oil painting button.
