I have a few orchids - some are actually near our house, a lot deep in the jungle.  ;D

I have one that is called the butterfly orchid. Very nice.
So, how did I end up here anyway?

What does it take to grow an orchid indoors? Do they survive? I mean do they survive without huge amounts of work? ???

These probably don't belong in this American beauty thread. :D
They are tropical type plants. I don't know if some type hybrids are available for cold weather. She grows them outdoors but brings them in when it is cold out.
These are hanging in baskets along the pool fence. They live off a root system without dirt.

The orange one looks kind of like the day lilies we have around here, and the other one looks like an iris. Both of them are very pretty!

Here is a Texas wildflower that I posted as a what-is-it.  However, it is so pretty, I decided to post it again here!

 

Texas bluebell.  Eustoma grandiflorum.  I love the wild flowers :).

Great thread,  beautiful wild flowers.  Patty, I have to say your first rose pic takes the cake.  It is so delicate with that slight hue of color on the tips its simply stirring.  It must be an award winning rose.  Fantastic! :o :o :o

Thanks 77, she is a beauty isn't she.  And better yet they smell as pretty as they look! smiley_daisy

A new favorite of mine this summer has been the gladiolas. They make very nice indoor arrangements. I will get a picture of one I picked yesterday.
