The New York Botanical Garden boasts it’s annual Orchid show, on display from March 3 – April 22, 2012. I had the pleasure of enjoying one of our first days of spring and attending the Orchid Show, what a treat! Admission is $20.00 (give an email address and the cost is $18.00). Please make the time to go and see the loveliest of visual displays that you can imagine! Patrick Blanc’s Vertical Gardens are breathtaking and done with such a love for texture, color, and natural beauty. The orchids that we all know and love; Dendrobium, Cattleya, Cymbidium, Oncidium, and Lady Slipper, to name a few. There were some orchids on the scene that you don’t see as often, Nun’s Cap, White Fairy and Reed varieties. My favorite will always be the Pansy Orchid, delicious little faces of cuteness! I hope that you enjoy the pictures that are to follow. Please make the time to visit the show, you will not be disappointed!
