Brooklyn Orchids

Orchid Spectrum at U.S. Botanic Garden

I mentioned awhile back that I wanted to keep an eye out for the Smithsonian Gardens’ annual orchid exhibit. Well, just last week I discovered that the exhibit, called Orchid Spectrum, is running from February 23 to April 8 at the United States Botanic Garden. So on Monday I took a chilly walk on over to check the exhibit out!

Happy New Year! + NYBG Orchid Show 2018 Dates

Happy 2018, everybody! Now that we’ve put the dumpster fire called 2017 behind us, my wish is that 2018 is filled with less stress, outrage, and drama…globally.

Although I no longer live in New York City I wanted to post about this year’s New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show dates. The first time I attended the Orchid Show was the day my obsession with these plants began, so it will always hold a special place in my heart. Sadly, I didn’t even get to go to the show last year because we moved to DC at the end of February and I was too busy packing up our apartment to visit the show before our move. Maybe I’ll have a chance to go to NYC and see the show this year!

You’re probably wondering what my announcement is. Well, after 15 years of living in New York City, I’m moving to Washington, DC! My husband’s business is expanding there and at some point over the last six months it became clear that it would make more sense for him to move to DC than for him to commute between the two cities on a frequent basis. There was no real reason for us to keep our apartment in Brooklyn simply for me to stay here…so we’re packing up all of our stuff and ripping the NYC bandaid off.
