Blue Orchid from Milwaukee Art Museum

More Wordless Wednesday


  1. oh my, I'm wondering if you snapped this at Art in Bloom? I missed it this year, but it's an amazing show. this photo is gorgeous!

  2. The orchid doesn't even look real, the colors are so intense.

  3. @Banan Appealing:

    That may be because it's not real. There's at least one U.S. company out there selling blue orchids, which they turn blue by injecting them with dye.

    The picture in this post looks more like a Dendrobium than a Phalaenopsis (the usual victim), but I've seen Dendrobiums turned blue before also.
