New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show

Grand entrance to the orchid show

Finally, I got the chance to go N.Y.C Botanical Garden's orchid show with my daughter during her spring break (she is a high school teacher in Manhattan). It was a gorgeous spring day, and the B.G. is very impressive. The orchid show was much bigger than Longwood garden's orchid show. The pictures I took are only a small part of the show, and there are thousand of beautiful orchids exhibited at the B.G. (did you know there are 25,000 to 30,000 orchid species in the whole wide world?). I think I've inherited my late father's passion for orchids. I started to grow my own as a hobbyist more than 15 years ago, and in a way, I do it to remember my beloved father. Beside that I am always fascinating by their unique and characteristic nature. Once you enter the orchid world, there is no return!
