Orchids

A few days ago Tally and I went to The Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden. While it is located in the Bronx, it is still very accessible – just about an hour by subway. The garden itself is huge, and time was limited, so we focused only on the orchid show this time.

The exhibition is very impressive. It is set up so the flowers grow in their natural environments – that is, like in a rain forest. The design is delicate and takes into account the effects of light and its changes during the day (incidentally, or maybe not, in most places there is enough light so cameras work fine too).

It is also very colorful. The orchids are all lovely and lively, and appear to say “Spring is here” with all their hearts and souls. Even the cacti that they threw in for good measure were interesting.

Anyways, here are a few of my favorites on display. You are invited to see the full album, which Tally posted here (picasa) and here (facebook).
