ORCHID SHOW / Bronx Botanical Garden

It was a fabulous day in New York City………..sunshine perfect………..and a glorious day to spend at the Bronx Botanical Garden.

CLICK ON :  New York Botanical Garden

At the Enid Haupt Conservatory , the annual Orchid Show is now on……….thru April 22

A smile is worth a thousand……………

Pansy orchids………….but huge………..

The founding sponser for this show is THE TIFFANY AND COMPANY FOUNDATION.  Thanks guys!

Patrick Blanc has designed walls  of “Vertical Gardens”……..they are seductive and mesmerizing……….free from gravity……and dazzling with thousands of orchids.

There are special “Orchid Evenings”……wander about with a cocktail in hand……….and of course it is “orchid inspired”.

Jade Vine [ Stronglyodon macrobotrys]………….wierd!

“Red Velvet”………….. xRhyncattlleanthe

The favorite orchid for corsages.  Remember your PROM ?

Orchids reflecting in the pond.

The crowds were descending……….time to wrap it up.

Some call it “the Lipstick Orchid”.

The garden covers 250 acres……….so I wore my Orchid Hued Nikes!
