Exotic

The Orchidarium, which proudly houses some of the Philippines' abundant wealth of orchid species, is part of the Rizal Park complex. Unfortunately, it was closed for renovation (despite the open gates) when my cousin and I went on our tour.

Yes "Exotic" is probably the right word for this beautiful place!

It's too bad the Orchidarium was closed -- I'm sure they have many beautiful flowers. Hopefully you will be able to visit some time in the future and get some pictures to share with us.

Sorry that it was closed. If you wan to see a great photo of an orchid, check out the photo that Bob posted today (yesterday for you) on St. Louis Daily Photo.

May orchidarium sa loob ng Rizal Park? Interesting. Hmmm dapat talaga mabisita yan sa bakasyon.

I think it was open for many years after 2000, if the articles about weddings and other events held there scattered all over the web are any indication. I don't know when it closed again though, and when it will open again. Soon, I hope.
