Strange Trees

I took many photos, usually more than half of them go to trash, and this one is the only Orchid photos which survived after all.

I went to the Botanical Garden of American Orchid Society, but tell you the truty, I am not a big fan of Orchids. I am more interested in other plants there.
These are two strange tree I saw. Silk Floss Tree - the trunk is covered with a ince-size thorns, but flowers are beautiful pink. Brazilian Potato Tree - the flowers are white to light purple to dark purple and show all the colors at the same time. And the name tells, the flowers look like exactly potato flowers!
