Day 124 "Orchids" 6 x 9 pen & ink

Our friends in Florida have a lovely collection of orchids collected on their lanai.  The orchids seems to love their environment, sheltered from direct sun and predators, each plant so different from the others.  Some have roots that hang in the air, observing moisture from the air and an occasional light watering.  The leaves are so varied, and blooms as well.  There are a lot of stems showing promise, and some with small buds.  The flowers are beautiful.  Colors can be subtle, or more vivid.  I enjoyed sitting among the flowers examining their individual characteristics.  This is my hundred twenty-fourth daily drawing.  Thanks for observing the world through my eyes.
