This year was my first time attending the Tamiami International Orchid Festival which always takes place every January on the last weekend. It also happens to fall on the same weekend as the ING Miami Full Half Marathon, which since 2010 I ran the half (my very first half marathon). This year I said, whether I run or not, I’m not missing the festival.
Here are a couple of pics of the hundred orchids you can find at the festival and my best interpretation of what they could be.
This one is a “lady-slipper” orchid.
I don’t discriminate Cattleyas, I love them all such as this one and the next.
This is a dendrobium smilliae from New Guinea – I only knew that because I took a pic of the label. 😉
I wish I knew! (if I figure it out, I’ll update this caption)
Same as above – I didn’t get the best shot of the label -_-
I’ll finish it off with another favorite, a Cattleya.
