Fire engine red

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 must admit, I just loved these brilliantly colored orchids.
