We at Our Beautiful World, are welcoming October this week.

I like to share some photos I took in October, many years back. A visit to the Kuala Lumpur's Orchid Garden. The garden is located opposite of my favorite Botanical Garden. And in the vicinity of Butterfly Park and the Bird Park too!.
Through a fern garden, on the way to the orchid beds.
The most glorious staghorn fern, don't you think?
This park houses more than 5000 orchid species from around the world, of which some 800 of the Malaysian species!. [How I wished they had all bloomed at the same time!]
I am not an orchid enthusiast, but anyone can easily love these beauties. Some of them have a soft fragrance and some are not.
The orchids are grown in pots with coals, some on wooden stakes on the ground and many living off other plants (epiphyte).

I adore tiny orchids too, like this yellow variety;
Let see how my garden grows, if I could save those spinach and cactus from dying ... then maybe I should give orchids a try :). Hope you'd enjoyed some October orchids.
You are welcome to share your October stories with us too. Just link a photo up @ Our Beautiful World!. Till next week, Hugs.
