As February comes to an end we start to think forward to spring. March can still be quite cold, but toward the end we can usually start to see a change in the weather pattern. Of course spring means flowers. What better way to kick off spring a bit early than at the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden. See beautiful hanging orchids in the conservatory, which will make you think of spring. There are also poetry readings, dance performances, orchid care demostrations, and Orchid Evenings where you can sip a cocktail while viewing the show. The Orchid Show begins February 27 and runs through April 17. Enjoy!
