What do you see in life? Every week, Gypsy Lala invites us to share the beauty in our lives.
I do not know the name of this orchid. I call it Sunshine. It is a bright and dazzling beauty, isn’t it? I chose to share it as an example of the exotic beauty of Hawaii. Flowers love these islands, and these islands love flowers.
Wedding, anniversary, birthday,
whatever the special occasion,

Thank you for sharing such a beautiful flowers with us, Quilly.
The orchid looks like “Vanda Miss Joaquim, the national flower of Singapore” but in yellow, I seldom see this pretty yellow, not sure if it is the same type. Great capture.
Gypsy — well, whatever this orchid is, it is also beautiful!
Magnificent! Nature is truly a master artist. 🙂
Walter — my name for nature is God.
Gel — I thought so, thanks!
I love your Sunshine!
Mar — it does have an extra special glow about it ….
Absolutely beautiful 🙂
Why, thank you Thom. [bats eyes] But what about the flower?
That’s the kind of photo I’m always trying to get and rarely do. It’s so clear and fabulous! Congratulations, Quilly!
Kay — I love my camera!
Nessa, you’re so sweet! The flower is pretty, too, don’t you think?
Sunshine is a good name. I love it! Yellow flowers of any kind are my favorite!
Betty — I am very partial to yellow flowers, too.
You’re going to rename all the orchids before you go, aren’t you? Maybe publish “Quilly’s Guide to Hawai’ian Orchids, And What She Calls Them”
Excellent idea, Doug! Thank you! I know I can count on you to buy a copy!
As it down;loaded, it looked like peaches so I miht call it a peachy Ãœ It is certainly beautiful. Nice reminisence of hawaii where I lived fo three years a long time ago.
Comee and see my Life as I see it post.
Paulie — Peach Orchid is also a very good name. Thank you.
That’s gorgeous. “Sunshine” fits it perfectly.
I imagine you’ll miss these when you move, but I am sure Friday Harbor has its own charms.
Barbara — Friday Harbor is not as exotic as Hawaii, but it is much less crowded and much more quiet.
Truly gorgeous! THAT would make a nice stamp…
Melli — feel free to download the photo and make a batch!
what a beauty! i’ve never seen an orchid so vibrant yellow before
Polona — neither had I, so I had to photograph it.
That’s one gorgeous orchid.
I love the bright yellow!
Have a happy day!
Nicole — just looking at this orchid makes me happy!
Wow, it looks like a cattleya just by the looks of its leaves, but am not pretty sure coz I’ve never seen such beautiful orchid in this color. Life is beautiful, am up!
Pacey, I think it is a Cattleya, but I wasn’t certain. There was a huge display of Cattleya orchids in the green house at Foster Gardens and a few weren’t marked, but this did look like all the other Cattleya — except for it’s vibrant color.
That truly is a beautiful flower, thankyou for sharing it. 🙂
Magnificent shot of a beautiful flower! This lovely sunshine surely brightens up the day.
