Puffy pink

Puffy pink

I canít believe I actually did this, but I went back once again to the ďorchids: A MOMENTĒ exhibit at the Smithsonianís Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. I donít really have all that many pictures from this visit, but as I donít have much else to work on except old captures, will continue this gallery for a little while longer. I hope people are not ďorchidedĒ out! I was a bit shocked this time because no botanist had come in to tend to the orchids, and there were at least three plants in very bad shape. Not so good for an exhibit like this.

We are expecting a ferocious windstorm, and the power has already gone out once. If Iím not around on Monday, itís because the electricity is gone.
