Orchid, National Botanic Gardens of Ireland, Dublin

A greenhouse orchid
pretends to be a peacock,
fanning its proud tail.

  1. oh no…my imagination started to…fly! 🙂

  2. Wow. The orchid really looks like that. Good one. 🙂

  3. How utterly beautiful! I had a rose bush that had red patches that eventually turned yellow as the rose matured.

  4. I see the resemblance too.
    Beautiful flower.

  5. The orchid deserves it! It’s a beautiful flower! Nicely MMT!


  6. Orchids are so exciting, aren’t they!

    And as to the fall crocuses on my blog, you said you had never seen them. They aren’t really crocuses, is what I understand, but they are called fall crocus. They are so welcome at this time of year!

  7. Wonderful way to view an orchid!

  8. it’s not too hard to see why the Greek etymologists called them ‘orchid’ huh 😉

  9. ah.. those vain flowers… I knew that there was something

  10. What a delightful image. Such proud flowers

  11. WOW! What a wonderful photo. And that haiku … leaves me in awe.

  12. just awesome

    much love…
