Hospital Orchids

After attending church on Sunday, we stopped in front of a hospital in Tacoma for a spot of shade to gather our thoughts and program the GPS for the next leg of the trip. One of our Sunday traditions involves no shopping, and so we stock up the night before so as to avoid frequenting businesses and making people work on Sunday. Obviously there are some businesses that must operate on Sundays, and hospitals happen to be one of them. Given the convenient location and access, I slipped in to find a restroom.

You usually don't anticipate finding something spectacular in a hospital, and yet, there it orchid garden. Some of the orchids were in cages to protect them from curious hands. You know the kind, the must-put-my-fingernail-through-the-leaf-of-that-to-see-if-it-is-real type of hands. The magnificence of a plant that is so flawless that it appears to be unreal is instantly destroyed for all to see. At any rate, it took some artistic creation to get some of these shots without the bars in the way. I saved the best for last... and yes, the last two were in the cage.

P.S. And yes, I did share these photos in two places... they were just such amazing creations!
