Pink Saturday-Orchids in Singapore Botanic Garden

My contribution for pink saturday must be these beautiful orchids. I saw them in th Orchids Garden in our Singapore Botanic Gardens.
I think these orchids belong to the Laeliocattleya

Here's a short video of some of my favourite orchids. There are more photos of more orchids but these are just some of my best. I use microsoft movie maker to make this short slide of my orchids and included a favourite song of mine. It is "Times of Your Life" by Paul Anka.

Orchids! The queen of potted flowers ~ have always wanted one. So beautiful.

I'm going to ask for an orchid for my anniversary--I've always wanted to try having one around... must do some research on them first though.

Hey Alice! More fond & beautiful memories. We also used to live just 10 mins walk from these gardens. We had a 6-wheeled wooden wagon that we used to piled the kids & picnic stuff & have our meals there! Occasionally, I get into that wagon too - good exercise for my husband.

Thanks all for the visit and comments. The orchid garden is really very beautiful.

Tom, the movie maker is fantastic. I used it to make a video of my travel photos too and add my favourite songs to them. Very useful.

Great display of orchids ! I visited the Botanical Garden 2 years ago and enjoyed it. Back home, took some visitors to the Orchid Garden in Kuala Lumpur and they enjoyed it too.

Orchids always fascinate me. It's a little difficult to care for but once you mastered that the joys of their blooms more than make up for the trouble.

Mimi said...

Great goodies you're sharing! Don't you just ♥ Pink Saturday? This is the one day that I get to totally indulge myself, get all girlie, drink tea with cream, and share time with friends on the internet. Your blog post this week was wonderful...as usual!

Went out to dinner with friends, so I'm a little late, but better late than never, right? I wish you a Sunday filled with family, l♥ve, sunshine and peace.

Hi Alice,
I adore the orchids. My husband bought me an orchid at Easter but sadly, I let it die. I'm just not any good with plants. Nice Paul Anka song too.
