Summer Orchid Show

Now that we’re more settled here in our new home, I now have more time to do the things that bring me joy – not that cleaning the house and tidying up makes me burst into tears ok? I enjoy doing those too, but not as much as appreciating flowers and taking photos of those lovely creations of God. So this morning, after doing a load of washing, I got in my trusty little car and drove off towards Highland Intermediate School to visit the Taranaki Orchid Society’s Summer Orchid Show. I wanted to go to the Spring Show (held in September 2018) but I was busy making our house into a home that the show weekend just slipped by without me even noticing it.

SO ANYWAY – I went this morning and was absolutely stunned by the gorgeous orchids that were on display. I took a lot of photos and am sharing some of these on this page. Please do not ask me to name or identify the flowers as I would not be able to do so. You could, perhaps, get in touch with the society, and get more information from them.

Here are my favourite photos from this morning’s activity.

Not sure if the Society holds Autumn and Winter shows – if they do, I might just mosey up there again. Meanwhile, I’ll sit here and wait until it’s cool enough for me to go out. I have to plant some of the strawberry runners in our strawberry patch into individual pots – in preparation for next summer.

That's not exactly a flattering image. Eh! Anyway, when I'm not taking photos, I do acrylic painting or write about my adventures (and misadventures) in this wonderful journey called life. :)
