A walk to remember

As a lover of nature, I am drawn and surround myself with beautiful things from nature. Again, I went strolling around Central Park's Conservatory Garden and took more up close pics of the wonderful flowers. Please pardon me as I do not know the name of these, but they look like an orchid hybrid.  I believe the way they grow, doesn't qualify them part of the orchid family but the anatomy of this flower clearly resembles an orchid, so if you guys know the name of this flower, please let me know.  I love the mauve lilac color they have and how precious and delicate they look. Today, The Women's Committee of the Central Park Conservancy is hosting the 28th Annual Frederick Law Olmsted Awards Luncheon across from my job. I might sneak in and take some pics, but with this crazy pouring rain, I might not be as successful at doing so.

Have a wonderful and productive day,
