Spring Hill Orchid Show

For a few years in a row, Orchid Lovers Club of Spring Hill has rented our Suncoast SNPJ Lodge 778 hall on County Line Road for their annual Orchid Show in March. I've heard about the event but never visited - and I'm glad I changed that today!

One of the things that surprised me every time I walked into familiar Hall, ready for another event, was - how different it looked. Like I've never been there before.

At the entrance I met one of the happy visitors, Charles Leavitt, with a breathtaking orchid with lavender blooms - and asked him if I could take a picture of his prized new possession and and him for this post (photo below).

And then I took many photos of the beautiful orchid blooms in the most amazing colors and color combinations. Some of the best ones you can see below.

All in all, 2011 Spring Hill Orchid Show was well worth visiting and I'm sure I'll go see it again. See more orchid photos by clicking on the link below:
