These blue orchids have an almost unreal color.  That’s because the stems are injected with a blue dye before the flowers bloom.  While the color may be a bit surreal, they are quite captivating.

These orchids were on display at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, VA.  Inside an arboretum, their delicate, colorful blooms offered a refreshing break from the bleak, cold weather outside when we visited in February.
