Orchid Show

An Orchid Grows in the Bronx

20140308-215124.jpg Today, in New York, the sun finally came out. People took to the streets grinning, shedding layer after layer as the temperature climbed to a whopping 58 degrees. It was a miraculous gift of a day and I took the opportunity to jump in the car, roll down the windows and continue my exploration of the Bronx by visiting the New York Botanical Gardens.

From now until April 21st, you can stop by the New York Botanical Gardens to get a rare up close look at some of the rarest, intricate and beautiful orchids on earth. This years theme is Key West Contemporary and with temperatures in the greenhouse feeling close to eighty, I truly felt, for a moment, that I was indeed in a sunny garden in tropical Key West.
