Flower Power

If I haven’t made it clear- Germany was fantastic.  No, it wasn’t just the wine.  It was, well, everything.  One of those everything type activities was the National Garden Show in Koblenz.  I know, you’re thinking “Seriously, Alexis?  A Flower Show? “  Yes, I am serious.  A flower show.  It is like the Olympics of flowers and it is kind of amazing.  The flowers shown were mesmerizing, almost appearing fake in their perfection.  Don’t believe me? Check out some of my favorite photos of the wide variety of orchids from the show.  Then thank me.  And apologize for pre-judging my flower show experience.  Cause it really was fantastic.


  1. These flowers are beyond perfection, and seem to have their own personalities – I can’t help but think of Alice in Wonderland :-)

  2. I love flowers. There’s many gardens here in south Florida where you can picnic amongst the most beautiful orchids and flowers.

  3. Those are gorgeous photos, Alexis.

    That’s another thing I miss about living in Europe…..the garden shows my mom used to take me to since I was little.

  4. wow, amazing flowers!!!

  5. Look at these vibrant colours! I truly have a love for flowers, my Oma would always try to have fresh flowers on our table. I love the significance of certain flowers – with their often simple beauty there’s more to them (& in many cultures) than meets the eye.

  6. Great pictures! Those flowers are gorgeous! I always hear about these flower shows. I guess they must be really popular in Europe. @Lindsey Alice in Wonderland is the first thing that entered my mind too!

  7. These are truly amazing. I love flowers and love to photograph them. They are healing to me. Thanks for sharing!
