Day 51/365 Orchids

Today I had a most lovely day with some of my ya yas at the Missouri Botanical Garden's orchid show.  The theme was Mayan this year and so I got to see some interesting mayan people made out of flowers.  It was all quite lovely and it was SO WONDERFUL to see some colors again!
After the the orchids we checked out the rest of the garden and had a peaceful time walking and chatting together.  I so needed this time. 
I went to my parents' house after the busy day so I haven't had too much of a chance to check out the pictures yet.  I'm only going to post 3 pictures tonight, just a sample of the pics yet to come.
Thank you my wonderful YAYAS for having a spectacular day with me.  I value our time together more than you'll ever know.  I'm glad we get to enjoy some of the beauty in life together while trying to get through the rough patches.




No EXIF info tonight, but I used my macro lens on all of these and I tried to stay around f 2.8-f 4 so the flash that I was using could be used on its lowest power.


  1. Wow! Fantastic shots. I can't wait to see the others.
    Melissa, you are such a fabulous friend. I'm so grateful we can be there for each other and share the good and bad. Okay, if I type anymore I'll start to cry. You're awesome and thanks for the "Uie" today.

  2. Okay...I DID cry when I read both your comments on my blog. All I can say is:
    and sniffle, sniffle.


  3. Oooh, these are good, Melissa! Thanks for inviting me and thanks for being you!!!

    LOVE you!
