Happy April’s Day,
No joke this morning, just some photos of some of the orchids at Mason Hollow Nursery.
The freezing rain this morning will not dampen my Easter mood. I love this holiday, a celebration of rebirth, a time to be with family and friends. I was looking for some photos of Hyacinths, a flower I associate with Easter but visually the flower is not that interesting to me. My memories are triggered by its delightful scent, not its appearance.
I’m including a “photo” that I made without using a camera, something that anyone with a flatbed scanner can try. The name for this technique is scanography.
The orchid photos were taken at Mason Hollow Nursery in Mason, NH. I’ll update this posting when I learn of the variety (if you know, leave me a comment)
I’m not sure what the name is for this part of the orchid. I’ll update the posting when I find out.
During the winter months I make a practice of visiting greenhouses for what passes as my tropical vacation. These photos were taken at the greenhouse at Mason Hollow Nursery in Mason, NH. The nursery specializes in Hosta plants and other select perennials and will open for the season on May 7th. I was visiting co-owner Chuck Anderson who has an interesting collections of orchids and carnivorous in the greenhouse at the nursery.
