"Orchid Extravaganza" at Longwood Gardens

I love visiting gardens whenever I can, especially during this time when many conservatories are filled with colorful orchid displays. If you're in or near historic Kennett Square, Pennsylvania from now through March 25th, I encourage you to make a stop at Longwood Gardens to see the annual "Orchid Extravaganza". 

While I was at QVC last week, I had the opportunity to visit Longwood's orchid exhibit - it includes more than 4000-orchids creatively displayed throughout its glass houses. Among the show's highlights - nearly 100-Phalaenopsis orchids in various colors from Taiwan, 200 blue Vanda orchids dramatically suspended from the conservatory's ceiling, a graceful 12-foot tall arch covered in more than 600 yellow and white Phalaenopsis blooms, and six giant white Phalaenopsis orbs hanging overhead. It is a spectacular presentation of color and artistry.

Here are some photos - enjoy.

A Day at QVC

I’m having so much fun on QVC - not only do I get to show you all the wonderful products from my growing collections, but I get to demonstrate how each one works, and how it can make your day-to-day lives easier.

This week, I spent an entire day in West Chester, Pennsylvania, home of the QVC headquarters and studios. Our series of segments began at 12am ET and continued throughout the day until my last appearance at 11pm ET. My head gardener, Ryan McCallister, and I shared items from my Garden Collection - my Pressure Washer and Pressure Washer Concentrate, my Faux Bois Wicker Planters, my 16" Garden Tiller, my Hedge Shears, my Plant Fertilizer, my Edger and Trencher, and copies of my latest book, “Martha’s Flowers, A Practical Guide to Growing, Gathering and Enjoying”. I also shared more items from my apparel line - tops, bottoms, jackets and sweaters - everything is doing so well, and I am so proud of all the work we've done to bring you these offerings.

I am looking forward to my next scheduled appearance on QVC - be sure to follow my Twitter page @MarthaStewart for details. Enjoy these photos.

Another Day in Oslo, Norway

There is so much to see in Norway - if you've never been to Scandinavia, I encourage you to make the trip!

After our brief visit to Svalbard, we returned to Oslo and filled our day with as much as possible - we enjoyed a lovely lunch with some friends, stopped in at many interesting and inspiring design and antique shops and toured a new and interesting lounge at Scandinavian Airlines.

Here are some of our photos - enjoy.
