This was our second visit to the American Orchid Society, also known as the "AOS", located in Delray Beach, FL.

The first occasion was in January of 2008 when the weather was cold, or at least as cold as it can get in South Florida.

During the winter, the orchids inside the greenhouse were amazing but it seemed like the rest of the grounds were a bit dormant due to the weather.

In comparison to winter, the grounds during the summer were teeming with life including a variety of plants, animals, and insects.

Some of the wildlife we saw included a marsh hare, a southern black racer snake, a squirrel, lizards, multi colored dragonflies, butterflies and a variety of birds.

In one section of the American Orchid Society's grounds, you can see Lake Huntington and the Morikami Museum & Japanese Gardens on the other side of it. I highly recommend a visit if you have the time.

During our visit, I also recorded a few short video clips to capture the sounds of the AOS gardens. To view the movie, click on the link below or Right Click and choose "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" to download the file to your hard drive. The file is encoded in the Windows Media (WMV) format, runs about 30 seconds long, and has a file size of 8 mb (megabytes).
