orchids and more

Yesterday husband, daughter, granddaughter and I visited an orchids nursery. We had a lovely afternoon, taking lots of pictures, not only of the wonderful flowers, but also of the butterflies and parrots that were flying around.
The nursery can be found in Luttelgeest, that's a village in the Dutch province of Flevoland. It is a part of the municipality of Noordoostpolder, and was created in 1950 as one of ten planned villages around the new city of Emmeloord.

They are absolutely gorgeous. if you would ask my to pick one, I would have a very difficult time doing so. can I give you three favorites?
