NYBG's 18th Annual Orchid Show

Here in New York City, one of the first signs spring is around the corner is the start of the annual Orchid Show at The New York Botanical Garden. I love attending this show every year. Held inside the magnificent Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, it is known as the nation’s largest exhibit of its kind.

The Orchid Show: Jeff Leatham’s Kaleidoscope” opened over the weekend and runs through Sunday, April 19th. If you’re in the area, please visit. This year’s show is filled with thousands of beautiful and colorful orchids in purple, red, orange, and pink - all displayed through overhead arches, vine-inspired ribbons, mirrored sculpture, and dramatic lighting. Jeff’s floral designs and installations transform each gallery into a unique color experience - just like the turn of a kaleidoscope. Last week, I was able to get an after-hours tour of the show with Marc Hachadourian, Curator of NYBG's Orchid Collection.
