NYBG Orchid Show 2018

I had such an amazing time at the Orchid Show located on the grounds of the New York Botanical Garden in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. It was beautiful and serene! The floral art installations of Daniel Ost celebrated the complex and stunning beauty of orchids. I walked away with a new appreciation for orchids!

Come to The Bronx to enjoy more of their beautiful grounds!!!
