Well, yesterday I went to the Bronx and had a delightful time looking at mostly....orchids!!! http://www.nybg.org/tos11/the-orchid-show.php

The grounds on the way to the orchid house. Yep, it was raining!

Most shows are over the top, but with show tunes playing over the speakers, the extravagance was perfect. And it was hard to not sing and dance. Here's my buddy Donnie enjoying the music and orchids!

I only bought one epi. It was such a great color-more salmon than this shows. They lost the tag when they packed it.

What a beautiful presentation! Any day, rain, snow or shine is a great day at NYBG. I've gone to their orchid shows before but haven't gone this year. Now it feels like I did. Thank you!

Kathy, thanks for sharing your wonderful trip with us! I adore the Epi. I will bookmark this page to come back to when I am needing to recenter myself. I loovvvee the Boojum Tree, too. I hope to catch up with you soon and hear some details. It must have felt like Heaven.

You know, when you are there you just take it all in stride. Looking at the pictures today was intense. It also isn't a huge area and there's lots of visually restful spaces.
