Back to National Orchid Garden after a long long time, I think my last visit was like more than 3 years ago...








Worth a visit if you have a love for orchids. I didn't spent much time inside there due to the large crowds and simply because of my lack of interest so I moved on fairly quickly...










Orchid Exhibition for SG50 - I took photos of mostly Orchid species, not much of cultivars..



And my favourite orchid!
