Orchid Photographs, Brookside Gardens, Wheaton, Maryland
 
Brookside Gardens is one of our favorite places to visit in Montgomery County, Maryland. Chef Dolores and I attended and photographed this orchid show.  The orchids were beautiful and we had a perfect spring day to walk through the gardens. These photographs were taken by Dolores.
If you are in the area, be sure to take time to visit Brookside Gardens, with your camera in hand.  Life is better when there are flowers to photograph.
