Wow! Thank you for sharing, Carol! I'll never see it in person, which is probably for the best, as you'd never get me out of there.

This is just gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing! Lovey dubby
It really is a shame that they no longer host the SEPOS Show in the Spring, we used to love to come to Longwood Gardens and we would stay overnight, have dinner in town and we really enjoyed the place.

Carol, you would like it, plus tons of other stuff to do!

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.

What an amazing show, thanks for posting, Carol. I love those archways bedecked with the Phalaenopsis. The very first one with yellow and white flowers - my favorite colors - just gorgeous.

Somebody with a very tasteful flair put together these lovely displays. Still, I think I'd be on overload for a week, after walking through that whole show.
