Couldn't leave the flower mart this morning without taking a picture of these.

Macro Monday is inspired by Lisa's Chaos.

Dear CC,
LOL - I didn't think of it that way! It's a lot easier to photograph these than to paint them.

Dear Gel,
Thank you and welcome to dutchbaby!

Dear margie,
Orchids are a natural for macro shots - all that intricate detail.

Dear jeannette,
So glad you like this!

Dear Dave Ingram,
Thanks!

I just learned what orange jelly is from your blog. Very interesting!

Dear Lisa,
Thanks!

Dear Relyn,
You are too kind!

Dear Yoli,
It's not quite warm enough here in Northern California to grow a lot of orchids in the garden. Most of mine are indoors. I do have cymbidium in my back yard. Many people who have problems with deer plant cymbidiums because the deer don't eat them.

Dear Rochambeau,
That is such a nice sentiment! Thank you!

Happy Halloween to you too!
