~ ginny's orchids

While shopping in Winter Park, my mom and I had a fabulous celebrity sighting experience. We walked into a favorite shop of my mom's, Ginny's Orchids, and after a bit of chit chat, Ginny (adorable Ginny) realized I was the woman behind The French Tangerine, and I was the celebrity sighting! She literally treated me like I was Gwyneth Paltrow! Bless her precious heart. I could not have been happier about witnessing a follower so happy about The French Tangerine. Not gonna lie... it was awesome. 

Friends, you are in for a real treat. I have never in my life seen such exquisite orchids. Hundreds of them all in one place.





















Ginny has been grooming specialized breeds of orchids for over twenty years. Her selection is over the top with the showiest blooms and spectacular color. She is a fabulous caterer of orchids and fills orders large and small with personal attention.



We couldn't stop thinking about this one...








We returned the following day to pick up our favorite orchid creation, and were greeted with a special surprise.
Chumley.

My mom went nuts for Chumley.


We seriously would have taken him home to live with us for the rest of our lives, but they wouldn't allow it.

Besides orchids and Chumley, the shop features other charming accents.





A very special shop I will look forward to visiting each and every time I'm in Winter Park! 

And here is the prized orchid in my mom's house!



Visit Ginny's Orchids if you live anywhere that will allow you to do so!

Jan I have died and gone to orchid nirvana! Wow....so many beauties, I would never have been able to choose. Hope you went home with a few souvenirs:) I looove orchids and they are like the flower that keeps on giving, so beautiful and elegant, they add sophistication to any room they are placed in. Beautiful!

What a fabulous post! There is nothing like a beautiful orchid! I'm so glad you got to feel like the celebrity! I'm telling you, when people come in my shop and they begin telling the tales of reading my blog…and they usually mean my other blog because they go to my church…you really do feel like a celebrity! Sometimes it's embarrassing…but most of the time it is a very big compliment! It truly makes me realize that I have to be who I say I am and that people are always watching. We are blessed to have so many people truly care! I will never take that for granted! I hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

Spectacular! I love orchids. Unfortunately, they don't love me (or my non-orchid thumb).
