Carol, great pics! Longwood is an incredible garden.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you all for your kind words. Orchids certainly help to brighten the winter. If only I could coax even one orchid to re-bloom, I would be happy. In lieu of that far-off goal, here are some more photos from my visit to the Orchid Extravaganza at Longwood:

Just extraordinary! Longwood has nice displays even when they are not having an extravaganza. These are some shots I took there in 2005, they just had a small room with orchids but they were displayed so nicely.

I understand the Smithsonian Gardens are also having an orchid exhibit now through May in the Hirschhorn Museum in DC.

Lovely photos, Ardesia! That orchid room is still there. The orchids are switched in when they are blooming and out when they are not.
