When I spotted this blue beauty at the Central Ohio Home & Garden Show I know my eyes had to just sparkle.
Did you all hear me ewwing and ahhing?
I just kept staring at it and then thought that it just couldn’t be real. So of course being the kid that I am I just had to touch it to make certain.
To my surprise those big blue blooms were real. I am just a country gardener so I had never saw a blue Orchid before.
As they say I don’t get around much. LOL!
She was set in just the right display amongst other tropical plants…..
which paved the way into an outdoor room or Cabana that just screamed warm summer or tropical breezes.
Just the sight to make one long for a vacation on the beach
and get away from the cold, damp breezes of Ohio.
The Blue Orchid will never be in my collection of plants to my disappointment. Orchids do not do well in my home and I would never want to kill anything so beautiful.
Update: This Blue Orchid may be a white one dyed blue.
This tropical flower was planted in amongst the Blue Orchids. Does anyone know what it is?
I know some of my warm climate garden buddies will have the answer.
Update: The flower is Aechmea 'Blue Tango’.
Thank you Rhonda!
On another topic it seems some of our fellow bloggers are getting their posting stolen again.
I have added a script to my blog so that there can be “No Right Clicks” to make it harder for the pesky money grubbing thieves to steal the pictures and the content.
Everyone should try this deterrent just to make it harder for them.
They should at least be made to work for it if they are going to steal and try to make money off of your work.
Go here to copy the – Code.
Then go into the Design area on your blog to
Add a Gadget to your page and get the Add HTML /Java Script feature and copy the No Right Click code into it.
So Easy and Done!
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
