SNEAK PEEK
OF 2013 ORCHID SHOW

This is the time of year
when orchids burst into bloom.

One week to go
before the opening of the
2013 Orchid Show
at Missouri Botanical Garden.

This year's show features
the exotic orchids of Madagascar,
and marks the Garden's 25th anniversary
of plant research and conservation work
in this island country.

More than 600 orchids from the Garden's
historic collection will be on display,
starting February 1.

Orchids are indeed nature's masterpieces!

  2. How wonderful this must be, Rick!

    Our orchids (grown indoors) had a strange season this year. They usually bloom just about this time, but they bloomed well before Christmas this year, and now seem to be resting.

    I am looking forward to seeing your photographs from the show.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
