Anniversary Orchid



DEROCLES
STOVE LOVELY

In February I posted one of many orchids I saw at Orchid show in Santa Rosa, California.
Except the one above was a gift from my husband for our anniversary.
He realized that I have taken a liking to orchids since my other 4 are blooming for the second year.

What I did not notice about this orchid until I took photographs of it?
The heart in the middle.
Look close because it was difficult for me to do a lot of focusing this morning.
I think I need to practice my focus, and get my eyes in gear.

Yellow and red flowers are hard for me to achieve.
I was stunned when saw this today and the heart.



If you have eyes like mine, we need all the help we can get.
 I highlighted the heart to be seen better.




Thank you visitors and followers for your great comments.
As you can see I have not given up yet.

yellow and red and white are hard for me, i tend to blow them out so they are only one color, not details.
