I've managed to get online! What a treat, so I'm going to post some photos of the orchid garden in our hotel/ time-share complex. All of the gardens areas are fabulous, and so well tended, but the Orchid Garden is a beautiful little retreat from the sun and warm winds.
You'll also find me at my every second Saturday slot on Writing Wranglers and Warriors where there's a slightly different post about Madeira. Hop on over and see some different photos.
I'm not sure what they all are but I'm just sharing for pure enjoyment.
Pretty sure this is a banana tree!
Others are more delicate
I'm off now to catch some sun.
