NYBG Orchid Show 2018

The Orchid Show is one of my favorite things to do in New York City during the spring.  It is the start of spring and orchids are beautiful flowers.  They are one of my favorite flowers and I enjoy going to the New York Botanical Garden to view the show every year.  This year it is the 16th show that the New York Botanical Garden is hosting.  It’s amazing and no wonder that so many people go to visit.


This year the design of the show was created by an artist named Daniel Ost.  According to the website, he is considered the Picasso of flower arranging.  It’s amazing to see what an artist does with flowers and how they are able to arrange them and make a masterpiece.   Below are some photographs which I took while viewing the show.  I hope this inspires you to go and view them also.


Orchids are a beautiful flower that come in a variety of colors. I couldn’t get enough of taking photos of them.  A symbol that spring is here!



Orchid Show 2017

I love orchids.  They are one of my favorite flowers.  So of course, every year, we try to go to the orchid show at the Botanical Gardens in New York.   This year the orchid show was held from March until mid-April.   The theme of the orchid show was Thailand.

When you enter the conservatory, you enter a magical world.  There were huge elephants made from bushes covered in orchids.  It was beautiful.   As we continued through the conservatory, we saw many different types of orchids.  There were many different colors and sizes.

I was amazed by the beauty of these flowers and it of course inspired me to get my own orchid for my house.   When we got to another part of the conservatory, there were more orchids and beautiful in color.   They also had these cute little pineapples that grow in Thailand and were ripe and ready to eat.   I have never seen such cute pineapples.

I would recommend visiting the Botanical Gardens to see these orchids when they have them.  Every spring it is a nice way to start the beautiful season of rebirth.  Below are some photos from our trip to the Botanical Gardens. DSC_0732.jpg
