Photos of 2009 Chiang Mai Flower Festival

I slipped this in a recent reply I made on one of the threads but thought, it might not be seen by most readers there.

Here are photos of orchids and flower floats I took at the annual festival this year in Chiang Mai.
For the sharpest viewing, press slide show followed by F11.
I hope you enjoy them.

MJ

Beautiful pictures. I go to an orchid show every year; while I don't want to grow them I do love to look at them.

The festival is usually held during the 1st weekend of February.
Here is a site on this year's festival. You can search for additional others.

My pleasure to share.
