Memory Card Full

Memory card full. That is what my Nikon DSLR told me before I was done shooting today. Since buying this camera, its only happened one other time (when I was photographing Huntington Gardens in Pasadena, CA). For the second time, I had to pull out one of my spare memory cards before continuing. I blame the Cattleyas.

I've been photographing the annual Winter Carnival Orchid Show at the Como Conservatory for a few years now, but this year was something special. While the total number of orchids seemed a bit smaller, the number of Cattleyas was the biggest I have seen. Anyone who knows me well knows my liking of Cattleya orchids verges on obsession.

One very talented botanist has been growing some pretty spectacular Epidendrum orchids, and I'm not embarrassed to admit that I'm a little jealous. These tiny flowers were one of my favorites this year.

While the Cattleyas and Epidendrums were awesome, it was the Cymbidiums that stole my heart this year. The colors, smells, and textures made dealing with the large crowd of orchid fans, oversized strollers, and screaming children worth it.

It wouldn't be a trip to the Como Zoo and Conservatory without a walk through the Sunken Garden. With Valentines Day looming, I was pleasantly surprised to see some pink dicentra flowers mixed in with the cineraria, foxglove, and roses.

Perhaps one year I'll go to some of the winter carnival activities that are actually about winter (hockey, ice skating, viewing one of the ice castles), but for now I'll stick to seeing the orchids. They remind me that Spring is not too far off and there will be an end to winter… eventually. That said, I'll leave you with a rose.
