Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Gardens

And what a show it was! It continues through April 19th and if in the area make the visit as it is a kaleidoscope of flora colors. Two fun facts:

#1. There are 30,000 orchid species and over 100,000 hybrids.

#2. Orchids are even known to grow on trees.

Jeff Leatham is a Paris based designer who works internationally and, “loves orchids because each one has its own personality.” Take a peek and think you’ll feel the same.

Hanging Orchids
Wall of Orchids – all these are part of the Orchid family.

After the orchid show I visited the many other sites at the Botanical Gardens. There are walking trails, rock gardens, an extensive children’s area, picnic grounds, and in April their hill of 1,000,000 daffodils will be in full bloom. Come and enjoy!
