Orchid Show

February 13, 2017

It's only mid-February, but we can still think ahead to spring. March can still be quite cold, but toward the end we can usually start to see a change in the weather pattern. Of course spring means flowers. What better way to kick off spring a bit early than at the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden. See beautiful hanging orchids in the conservatory, which will make you think of spring. There are also poetry readings, dance performances, orchid care demonstrations, and Orchid Evenings where you can sip a cocktail while viewing the show. The Orchid Show begins February 18 and runs through April 9. Enjoy!
