Orchids in Tandem

My mother loves orchids. I mean, she LOVES orchids. Mom's wedding bouquet was made up of cattleya orchids and the story goes that when it was time to throw her wedding bouquet, she refused throw her orchids. Instead, she threw another bouquet. Like I said, she loves orchids.

As a result of my mother's devotion for these tropical flowers, I can never pass up an opportunity to photograph them. I discovered these orchids while staying at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville. They seem like delicate orchid soldiers standing in a row. Even miles away in Tennessee, Mom is ever present in these cherished flowers.
