Growing Upside Down

Oh I have something beautiful to show you this week!  See those gorgeous yellowish orchids?  What do you think?  They were actually growing upside down, and not planted in the ground at all.

Yes, they were growing upside down, and I was in awe when I saw them at the Detroit Belle Isle Conservatory.  This scenery was just breath-taking with so many wonderful colors combined!

So here they were!  They grew in these crates that hung down from the ceiling!  They were like the popular upside down tomato plants that we have heard of these last couples of years!  It was genius idea, I think!

Here was another view of the crates! It was such a great use of the vertical space, and it was such a thrill for me to see.  It's great to learn new thing.
