Today's post is brought to you by the color yellow and the number three!

The Orchidarium is a little-known piece of jewel right next to Burnham Park in Baguio City. Here, you can buy an assortment of ornamental plants and garden necessities direct from the growers. I occasionally visit this place to get flowering plants for the house and for my mother, who adores roses and orchids (while my father likes planting vegetables).

We visited the Orchidarium a couple of weekends ago to accompany Follen who was tasked to buy plants to bring to Manila.

The stall below is the one we used to visit regularly back in college. The owner (seen at the far right) still knows us, and gives us a good price for our purchases. On that visit, we bought a hydrangaea for our home. (It's also called mayflowers, and is surrounding us in the photo below. Huge, beautiful clumps of blossoms).


Here are some strikingly-yellow flowers that caught my eye.



All three of us enjoy these visits to the Orchidarium. It's simply beautiful. Plus, it's good to acquaint Jo-Lo with these surroundings so he'll appreciate what beauty there is in Baguio and possibly avert some allergies to flowers someday.
