photo hunt: family

I wanted to avoid a family crisis and since I couldn't choose the appropriate family picture to post here, I looked for another family... and found a very beautiful one, thanks to the wiki.




Orchidaceae (or Orchid family) is the largest family of the flowering plants.(Angiospermae). Its name is derived from the genus Orchis.

These pictures were taken at the Orchid Exhibition at the Ludwigsburg Palace 's orangery (see prior post) outside Stuttgart.

Since I don't have time to blog on weekends I post my Photo Hunt on Fridays as it allows me to interact with the early birds ( cheers!) .Pls know that I return every weekend visit but sometimes it has to wait until Monday ... sorry about that!
