The Orchid House

All these shots in this Blog have been taken since April, 2007.

The Lincoln Park Conservatory has four display greenhouses .. A Palm House, A Fern House, An Orchid House and A Show House ... This Blog has images only from the "Orchid House" ... which apart from orchids, also has a wonderful collection of bromelaids and other tropical plants

First few posts are about the typical characteristics of orchids, types and inflorescence ... but for that you'll have to scroll to the bottom of the page ...The site dedicated to the employees and volunteers at the Lincoln Park Conservatory ... My thanks to Mark and Bill for taking out time and helping me with names ...

click on the image for enlarged view ...
