Growing up I would see my grandmother’s garden filled with all kinds of flowers including about a dozen different orchids. Since then these beautiful and delicate looking flowers have been my favorite. The orchids carry different meanings in various cultures, but their beauty and seductiveness is admired across them all. In their annual Orchid Show, The New York Botanical Garden puts on the nation’s largest exhibition of orchids. This year, its 10th year, The Orchid Show features Patrick Blanc’s Vertical Gardens. I have been visiting The Orchid Show for the past five years and every year the exhibition is breathtaking. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, I will not attempt to describe the flowers in my biased opinion instead I will share a few pictures. Enjoy!
