A Day at the National Botanical Garden

Orchids in the garden

I’m not much for getting out in the snow. If you want to see the orchid show at the National Botanical Garden though, get out you must. I did and I’m always glad. There was a musical theme to the show this year. Many of the plants were displayed in wire frames shaped like musical instruments, such as a piano, violin, and very large horn. The fountains were dancing to music and lights as well. I was lucky to have frequent clouds passing over which helped control the light. Orchids are very shiny and don’t photograph well in direct sunlight. After about three hours I had to get away from the crowd, heat and humidity. Still, a nice day out.
