ORCHIDS IN MY GARDEN

Have I mentioned I love orchids? They were planted by my son. Do you also love them? Do you have orchids in your garden?





Photos taken by myself in my garden.

  5. Hi again! Those are some great orchids, what I have learned they can be pretty tricky to maintain. I have had some in a pot, but ofcourse they don't enjoy so much living inside a house. Yours are blooming so much!

  6. You have a very nice garden! great shots!

  7. you call that a garden? Where I'm at we refer to your "garden" as a botanical farm.

  12. In my hometown, the Philippines we have those orchids from the first and last pictures.

    I love orchids too because their blooms last a very long time.

  13. Sonia, que beleza de orquídeas! São minhas flores preferidas!
    Bjs.

  14. Sonia: We can't grow orchids outside up North but yours are certainly beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I LOVE Orchids, Sonia...These are so very beautiful! All of them!
    But that first one is quite extraordinary, isn't it? That third picture---I think I have seen that Orchid, but I'm not sure. I would need to see it closer. I LOVE That your son planted that first one. Did he plant the others, too?

    And I do not have any Orchids in my garden, but often I have an Orchid or two in a pot, in the house. Such beautiful exotic plants!

  16. Sonia,
    amei suas orquídeas. E as fotos. Belas!
    Beijos!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sonia, they are so gorgeous! and no, I don't have them in my garden, as they would not grow outdoors here except in summer.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wonderful garden!
    I dont plant them because i dont have garden or time. but every year i see many in Madeira island where i go on vacation. I hope this year to post some.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am delighted, Sonia! Beautiful orchids.

  20. Sonia, poderia dizer sobre a sua técnica, mas só cabe uma palavra: "perfeita". Poderia dizer da beleza desses motivos, mas seria redundância, então só cabe "magistral". Poderia dizer das cores, mas não vou perder tempo, é melhor ficar admirando. Então, neste silêncio que me imponho, fico a confessar interiormente que não posso deixar de ser seu fã nessa arte. Parabéns.

    Beijo.

  22. Hi Sonia,
    Your orchids are beautiful :)
    We grow them here too, and they take very little care. Most of mine came from my Mom and Grandma, so they are quite old.

  24. what a beautiful garden you have, can you come do mine as i have a black thumb i think

    ReplyDelete
  25. No ! I have no orcjids in my garden because the climate will not be good for them in winter. I have one inside but no flower at this time.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Amo orquídeas ...as suas estão maravilhosas...adorei o novo header...
    beijos...e os nossos amigos pelo mundo afora será que vão conseguir?
    Muito bom este novo capítulo destes blogueiros tão criativos...

  27. Eu tenho Sonia! Uminha que ganhei quando meu filho mais novo nasceu, já deu flor este ano! Está cheia de brotos. Que saudade, quanta coisa linda por aqui!! Bjs!

    ReplyDelete
  28. We don't usually grow them outdoors here Sonia. Most of them are kept indoors. The only season they would like outdoors is summer.

    I'd love to have them outdoors like you do!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Such beauties planted by your son in your garden!

    I found two wild orchids while hiking in the mountains. I will try to post the pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Lindas, lindas e lindas, AMO orquídeas e as suas estão muito bonitas. Eu só tenho uma, que acaba de perder as flores e estou triste com isso, não sei se conseguirei cultiva-las direito para que floresça no próximo ano, pois moro em apartamento e não tenho muita opção, a não ser uma varanda que venta muito e não bate sol,snif,snif.

  31. Wow, you have such beautiful orchids in your garden. And I see two that looked wild, like they exist in nature, growing on trees.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sonia...thank you for your sweet visit...Wow! Your orchids are just gorgeous and you have so many different varieties...Your blog is lovely and I've really enjoyed some of your older post...Best Wishes..Dee Dee

  33. This is wonderful addendum to your recent "the best place of the world"!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Sonia, é difícil não acreditar no Criador depois de ver essas suas fotos. Lindas.
    Encaminhei a Claudia.
    Grande abraço.

  35. I have never had an orchid but these are beautiful! You live in a climate where you can have these lovely things outdoors all year round! Very nice!! Thanks for sharing Sonia! Just lovely plants!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. this is a good question: can we grow orchids in this climate? well, soon I'll have my own garden to try it :)!

    ReplyDelete
  37. OHH Sonia I simply love your Orchids they are beautiful specially the Mauve one. I Grow a few Cymbidium orchids they suit our climate.but of course there not flowering yet Maybe another moth or 2..

    ReplyDelete
  38. Although we love plants, our garden is minimal since we don't have green thumbs. Your orchids are fantastic, esp. those on trees!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great pictures. I love the flowers in the tree.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Estas fotos falam. São límpidas e transparentes. Entramos nelas como num paraíso.
    Simplesmente deslumbrante.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Por acaso até tenho, são dezenas de vasos.

    ReplyDelete
  42. How lucky to have orchids growing in your garden! We have a type of orchid called Lady Slippers which grow wild on our cottage property. They bloom in May but do not like to be moved so they don't grow in gardens, but it is just as nice to stroll through the woods and see them growing there the way Nature planted them.

  43. I love your garden....and the orchids are lovely.....

    ReplyDelete
  44. First, my apologies for a bit of cut and paste commenting. I have been doing the rounds via Bloglines and looking at all the pictures from my favourite photo blogs, but haven’t been leaving comments. Generally, I try to comment every three or so days (I know how good it is for ‘morale’ to know that someone is out there appreciating them), but after the birth of my second son, I am a bit knackered to think up something witty and insightful on the hop. Thus the resort to Control+C and Control+P!

  45. Beautiful garden! Full of colours and full of life.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Your garden is so lush, Sonia.
    I'm fascinated by the plants that grow in your trees. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    ReplyDelete
  47. thank you also for your visit! this blogger works funny... you are on my blogroll, and I always enjoy coming here and visiting Brazil!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love all of your beautiful orchids.
    Have a glorious weekend.
    Love Jeanne

  49. Your orchids look like they are flourishing. I am from California and we can grow Epidendrium orchids, cymbidiums and cattleyas but dendrobiums don't do well here, at least not in the garden. Those are some nice photos, thanks for sharing.

  50. Beautiful orchards. I have a small house in northern Laos, and my neighbor's son keeps the yard bright with orchards and other flowers. The purple and white orchards at the top of your post are just like a species of orchard we have here.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Sonia querida, claro que poderia ficar horas aqui admirando suas belas orquídeas.
    Elas estão lindas. É a resposta pelo cuidado e carinho que dedicas à elas.
    Parabéns. Seu canto deve mesmo ser um encanto.
    Um beijo e ótimo final de semana.

  52. Tenho um enorme respeito pelo mundo vegetal. Não me imagino sem ele!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Sonia,

    depois de 24 horas dentro do BURACO cavando, vir aqui e encontar essas orquideas foi muito bom!
    Tenho te visto pouco ao redor dos CAVADORES, mas agora entendi, orquideas dão trabalho!

    Bjs

    PS- Brincadeirinha, hem?

    ReplyDelete
  54. I've just offer one like your yellow one to my husband! But, here, in France, orchids have to be kept inside...
    You never forget to visit Arradon DP, Sonia, thank you so much.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Your orchids are a beautiful colour, I have heard they are difficult to grow, yours are doing well.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hi, Sonia, sempre bacana por aqui, gostei de ver as Orchids. Quando era um orquidófilo ativo tinha umas 600 espécies, hoje poucas, umas 100 escolhidas. Hå uma que florece sob a terra não dá para ver é a Rhizanthella gardneri, australiana

  57. Wow! Such a gorgeous garden! Love orchids!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Must say that I am green with envy at your orchids out in the garden. I've two pots that I guard and there is always something that goes wrong with them. Now the leaves of the white one are drying out :(

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh how lovely, and very exotic! I live in the northern United States, and thus orchids are out of the question for me, but I have loved seeing yours. :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. These orchid are such rewarding photos Sonia. Nice shots. have a great weekend
