Wall of orchids

Wall of orchids

I went back to the exhibit titled “orchids: A MOMENT” at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, as the notice advertising it said the exhibits would be changed periodically, and so they were, at least some of them. Such a beautiful display! I only wish more of it was accessible, but since it’s arranged on a big wall, many of the plants were far too high to photograph.

I thought I’d give an idea of what the entire exhibit looked like, taken at the start of my second visit.

A 'moment' indeed; it is remarkable that they've got so many species and varieties to peak perfectly at the same time.

Now that's a giant display. Now I understand that you could not take photos from the upper level orchids.
