The Orchid Room

My friend tends a greenhouse and, while she’s basking on a beach somewhere in California, I’m taking care of it for her!

The downside is that, being me, I accidentally brushed by a cactus on a bench and it rolled down my leg, leaving little spines all the way down.

The upside is…plants!  Here are some shots of the orchid room.
