Orchids at the Orchideeën Hoeve

Here it finally is, a blog about the Orchideeën Hoeve with orchid photos 🙂 Photos I made during my most recent visit and also a couple of years ago. I like orchids. I have 16 plants at home. Different types and colors. The plants bloom again every year. Throughout the year I have a few flowering on the table. By the way, I now have to stop buying and taking over. In the resting phase the plants are in the window sill in the kitchen, but that really does not fit anymore. Furthermore, the care is now going to cost a lot of time. I immerse the plants every week. It takes time. By taking over, I mean that I get plants from people who do not get them to flower again, or have space for them.

Orchids 🙂

Orchideeën bij de Orchideeën Hoeve

Hier is hij dan eindelijk, een blog over de Orchideeën Hoeve met orchideeënfoto’s 🙂 Foto’s die ik maakte tijdens mijn meest recente bezoek en ook een paar van langer geleden. Ik houd van orchideeën. Ik heb zelf 16 planten thuis. Verschillende soorten en kleuren. Ieder jaar bloeien de planten opnieuw. Het hele jaar door heb ik er wel een paar bloeiend op tafel staan. Overigens moet ik nu wel stoppen met kopen en overnemen. In de rustfase staan de planten in de vensterbank in de keuken, maar daar past nu echt niets meer bij. Verder gaat de verzorging nu wel heel veel tijd kosten. Ik dompel de planten iedere week. Dat kost tijd. Met overnemen bedoel ik dat ik planten krijg van mensen die ze zelf niet weer in de bloei krijgen, of er plek voor hebben.

Birds at the Orchideeën Hoeve

Photos taken at the Orchideeën Hoeve. Birds this time. With the last expansion, a lot has of birds have been added. The enclosure is called Makirijk (Lemur country), but it is also a large flight cage with beautiful colorful birds. For me the birds are the most important, because I have already photographed many lemurs in the Apenheul. And then also from very close. It is nice to see how the animals get a lot of space here too. It looks good.

I will definitely go to the Orchideeën Hoeve soon. A wonderful place!

Vogels bij de Orchideeën Hoeve

Foto’s genomen bij de Orchideeën Hoeve. Vogels dit keer. Met de laatste uitbreiding zijn er heel veel bij gekomen. De afdeling heet Makirijk, maar het is tevens een grote vliegkooi met mooie kleurrijke vogels. Voor mij zijn de vogels het belangrijkst, omdat ik al heel veel maki’s heb gefotografeerd in de Apenheul. En dan ook van heel dicht bij. Het is mooi om te zien hoe de dieren ook hier veel ruimte krijgen. Het ziet er goed uit.

Ik ga zeker binnen kort weer naar de Orchideeën Hoeve. Een heerlijk plek!

Flower splendor at the Orchideeën Hoeve

A whole series of photos from my visit to the Orchideeën Hoeve. This is my third post, and I have not yet posted any Orchids! Pretty crazy of course 🙂 There is a chance that my fourth post on this visit does not contain orchids either. That is not because they are not there. But because there are many other beautiful things to see and photograph.

There is more and more. Also for birds you can go there now, besides the Lori garden,there is a flycage with beautiful water birds. The Orchideeën Hoeve is a lovely tropical getaway, especially if the weather is not tht good. By the way, for those orchids…. Stay tuned :-).

With every visit I try to take a nice picture of these flowers. There is a tree with these beauties. Unfortunately I’m not lucke enough to be there if the flower is completely open and fresh. Or they are much too high. Not this time either, unfortunately. But it still is a beauty I’ll keep trying.

I’m sharing two bromelia photos and they are completely different. Prove that there are so many beautiful different species of this plant family.

A very small passion flower. This was on a plant in the “butterfly nursery”. The plant was heavily battered by the caterpillars, but did its best to make something beautiful.

All visitors walked past this beauty. It was high and no attention was paid to it. I am a fan of these flowers myself. So beautiful! The bracts with those small white-yellow flowers in it are beautiful.
