On Friday the kids and I took a trip to Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont Nc. I was surprised that this was the first day trip the kids wanted to take on the start of their Spring Break vacation.I guess the fact it was in the upper 60's and the allure of running through some fountains sealed the deal.

Last year The Botanical Gardens opened up an Orchid house that I had yet to see. It was truly amazing and the kids and I took lots of photo's of our favorite flowers. Here are just a few.

After viewing all these plants I sort of can see a similarity between some the flowers I do on my pots and this breed of flower. I think it would be a great idea some days for me to just go out there and sketch a wide variety of the orchids they have there.
