Botanical Building Orchids
While visiting San Diego, recently, we visited the Botanical Building in Balboa Park. Our timing was perfect, as most of the orchids were in full bloom! I love orchids and have a few which recently bloomed at home.
The Botanical Building was built for the 1915-16 Exposition and is one of the largest lath structures in the world. The Botanical Building includes more than 2,100 permanent plants, including a large collection of orchids and other tropical plants.
I’m going to let the rest of the pictures speak for themselves-no words. I hope you enjoy the wonderment and beauty of these flowers. If you are an artist/artisan perhaps their colors and forms will inspire you to create. Enjoy.
