Orchid Exhibition;

(Header pictures are also from the Exhibition)
I went to see Orchid Exhibition to our city's park held by its society.
This year I don't think I could find the really unique kind.
However, I wish you to enjoy the flowers; 










The president of the society and the members were admiring the presented works.
They were seeing the one on the left. I thought it looks looks like daffodil 
 :-) 
They approved me to be in my blog.

I'm linking this post to "Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop"
     "Today's Flowers" 

ps> March 11th was the day the Great Hanshin/Awaji Earthquake struck in Japan 3 years ago. I'd like to offer this flower post to the lives taken from tumani and people still living in makeshift shelter around the afflicted area;

Hi Miyako san! The orchids are all very bright and beautiful! What a great exhibit! I agree the yellow one looks like daffodil...probably I would think so if it was not in orchid exhibit :-)

You are so sweet to offer the flowers to earthquake/tsunami victims. It's been already three years but the memory remains so clear. Prayers to those who were affected.

Have a lovely day, Miyako san xoxo

What a lovely way to pay tribute to all the lives lost on that horrible day three years ago, my dear friend. We were mindful of it here, too. These are some of the most beautiful flowers I've seen- what a wonderful photographer you are! xo

Oh Miyako, this is such an excellent tribute and remembrance of that tragic event.

The orchids are beautiful....I have never seen those peachy/orange ones. They're wonderful. Every one of your pictures is beautiful.

Beautiful flowers and a beautiful sentiment at the end of your post.
The people of Christchurch still have a lot of issues after the earthquake 3 years ago as well. A lovely commemoration.

How beautiful! Orchids are one of my favorite flowers. I always assumed they were had to care for, but I've had mine for a few years and they re-bloom about every 6-8 months.
