Purity and Beauty



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Betsy and I usually manage to see the Conservatory every time we visit Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina. We wandered into the Orchid Room of the Conservatory when we visited in late November. The simple beauty of this orchid caught my eye.
