This is a gorgeous image of these beauties! I like your idea to have a completely blank background to show them off!
Beverly Andrighetti: Many thanks. I debated as to whether to leave the background in, Elizabeth, but in the end thought the blooms stood out better against a blank background.
spectacular Beverly!
Beverly Andrighetti: Very nice of you to say, Hollie. Thank you.

Aren't they beautiful Bev... you framed these so very well... Penny's Orchids are still this beautiful and they blossomed on Christmas day....petersmile
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much, Peter. I received this plant for Easter and just hope I can keep it alive as long as Penny has kept her beautiful orchids.
Oh, yes, Beverly. Welcome to my house and Astrid's green thumb. Delightful.
Beverly Andrighetti: I know Astrid is the master of keeping her orchids in top shape, Ginnie. Perhaps she could offer me a tip or two on how to make this plant, which I received for Easter, thrive & keep blooming. The instructions that came with it just says to water it once a week and place it in indirect light.

A cheery looking plant Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: It certainly brightened up the place, Chad.
What a way to show them off!
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much. I decided that removing the background made the blooms stand out better, Mary.

What a dream of a flower photo! Yes, I thought of Astrid's plants, too. You have found your own style of photography I really admire.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much for your lovely comments, Philine. I'm hoping Astrid will give me some advice on how to keep this plant I received for Easter alive & thriving.

You never can go wrong with orchids. Wonderful. I keep 7 in my windowsill, one already survived on me for over 20 years and blooms every year smile
Fabulous presentation.
Beverly Andrighetti: You are the go-to person for expert advice on raising & caring for orchids, Astrid. Imagine having the same plant for over 20 years. Amazing!
