Smallish Adventures - Chicago Botanic Garden Orchid Show

The Orchid show at the Chicago Botanic Garden opened at the perfect time. This winter has been rather harsh. We had a mini polar vortex and lots of snow.

I took my mom a week or so ago to check it out and to help chase the winter blues away. And the orchids did NOT disappoint. This years show was outstanding! The theme was “In the Tropics” and it totally captured the spirit of islands, beaches, and rainforests in places like the South Pacific and the Amazon.
