    Default Sunday Field Trip to the Orchid Conservatory

    As usual, the Atlanta Botanical Gardens were stunning last weekend, and I went crazy with my camera - I'll try to be restrained and only show a few of the prettiest/most interesting, but it's hard! A huge angraecum didieri, a phal violaceae, a lovelt catt gigas, and a paph with zygo coloring!
