Orchids in Balboa Park’s amazing Botanical Building!

I believe all these beautiful images are of orchids! I apologize if I'm mistaken. Most photos were taken just inside the left door to the Botanical Building in Balboa Park.

I believe all these photos are of orchids. Unfortunately, I’m not an expert when it comes to plants or flowers. Heck, I hardly even rank as an amateur. But I do recognize exquisite beauty. And you’ll find it just inside the left door of Balboa Park’s amazing Botanical Building!

I don’t know the types or names of these orchids. I looked for signs, but saw none. If you recognize anything, leave a comment!

  1. Gorgeous photos, Richard, of some of the most wonderful flowers in the world. The neighbors on both sides of my home grow orchids. It’s very popular down here in South Florida. And, yes, I just have to walk out my door and there they are! Your Botanical Building is marvelous.
