The New York Botanical Garden‘s tenth annual Orchid Show opened this past Saturday! I haven’t had a chance to go yet, but my friend and her mom went the day before the show opened to the public, on “member day.” My friend texted me from there and said that I was going to freak out over how amazing it is!! She sent me a few photos from her visit…and the displays certainly do look stunning:
My mom is coming to NYC to visit me at the end of this month, so I think I’m going to hold off on going to the show so that we can go and experience it together for the first time.
In the meantime, Gothamist posted some amazing photos from the Orchid Show that we can enjoy. It looks so colorful and lush! Martha Stewart also paid the show a visit and blogged about it, with lots of beautiful photos.
I can’t wait to take in Patrick Blanc’s vertical gardens in person! Check out Monsieur Blanc’s welcome video below:
Have any of you been to the show yet? Do tell!
Can’t wait to see it all.
I went today to The Orchid Show and was very impressed with Orchid display. You can see my photos here: http://blog.orchiddiva.com/orchid-show-nyc-2012-photos/

Thank you, happy to share! I went to Philadelphia Flower Show yesterday. Orchids were really impressive, check my photos here: http://blog.orchiddiva.com/orchid-extravaganza-photos-from-philadelphia-flower-show-2012/
Fantastic! I hope to make it to the Philly show sometime. Looks like they have some really stunning Paphs! And that Zygopetalum — those are my fave!
It’s definitely worth to visit Philadelphia Flower Show. It was amazing! Hope you can make it next year.
