August Floral - Orchids

Now I know that orchids are not the official flower for August, but I've stopped following those rules a few months back.  My mother-in-law has a beautiful orchid that is in full bloom and she wanted some photographs of it, so this will be my flower of the month photo.  Orchids have a very interesting shape to them and such a beautiful, intense color!  So, here they are, just for you Mom!
