Orchid Ornaments

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree,

How lovely are your orchids?


Here are the living ornaments.

Here is the marvelous tree.


It is not just a white Christmas here at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens.

Pastel pink and purple made a lovely combination.



Here, we have a “tropical tree” with bromeliads and Schlumbergeras.

I felt the urge to sing my “Song of Schlumbergera” in front of this one.


This tree with burgundy, red and yellow mixed with different textures is as magical as the nearby fairy houses.

This is only a fraction of the beautiful sights at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont , NC.

It is one of my “heavens” on Earth, along with Brookgreen Gardens in South Carolina.

Follow the Flower.
