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 mean, it’s Chicago, so, nothing terribly unusual, but…. I am so over winter. I couldn’t wait for the Orchid show this year! 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.
These are just a few of my favorite photos from this years Orchid Show. I’ll add more to my Flickr account in the next few days!
