Let's visit AFRICA.
(click on each photo to enlarge to see the flower detail)




Beautiful orchids to adorn a giant giraffe.


You can see the size of
this giraffe compared to the size of the spectators in the convention hall.


Local villagers adorned with colorful flowers.


This guy must be the chief or the local medicine man.
He reminds me of my dentist.
Scary!

Hold onto your passport as we travel to another county this week to view more flowers.

  4. This must be quite a show. The last garden show I went to was a little disappointing. Not one thing made me or my sister go WOW.
    I am sure there would have been some big WOWS at this one.

  13. I cheated and started at the end and worked my way up!
    The flowers are so pretty, esp that window full of yellow tulips.
    And I am still loving the Irish Mickey hat..
    Another trip to a cooking school coming up? Hope it is better than the last!
