We bought a lot of orchids of different colors, sizes, patterns for the Chinese New Year.

Now the festive season has gone and the orchids, after blooming for a couple of months, have all withered.

In replacement, we bought some white ones.Orchids

These flowers have extra large petals.

They are just so lovely!
