NYBG Orchid Show 2014

If you are in the NYC area, you are probably getting cabin fever from staying indoors most of this winter season. For some of us, outdoor gardens like BBG is a fun way to watch early spring flowers bloom and trees under a blanket of snow. For others, I recommend the tropical garden show for some warmer weather and nice colors. Every year, New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx puts together a fantastic orchid show. 

The show opened a week ago and will continue until April 21. This year's theme is Key West, FL.

Besides the obvious stars of the show, there are also other events like music and poetry. I caught a bit of the performance by Jimmy Kenny and the Pirate Beach Band and it's inspired me to look into more tropical tunes. 

Beat the winter blues, check out the orchid show!

There were four statues representing four seasons between the conservatory and the dining pavilion. This particular one is summer, as represented by many different types of summer blooms.
