ABC Wednesday, O for Orchid

I told you something about the Botanic Garden in Cooktown, and perhaps you saw the lovely purple flowers on one of the photos. They are the Cooktown orchids, symbols of the area. I thought it appropriate to use this flower for the letter O this week.




With thanks to Denise Nesbitt, who created ABC, and thanks to Roger. For more interesting ABC posts click on the logo in the sidebar. This week we are looking for words beginning with O

A beautiful floral symbol for the town -- orchids will grow here in Florida (there are some wild ones, but we've never seen them) but some people grow them in planters.

A beautiful color do these orchids have! The more I read about the Australia from you and several other bloggers, the more curious I become! Have a special week, Wil!
