Mark Your Calendar ~ Cuba in Flower is Coming to NYBG

Dreaming of warm and wonderful vacation for March?  If you happen to be stuck in the city rather than lying on a beach next month you might want to check out the Cuba in Flower Orchid Show coming to the New York Botanical Gardens later this month.

The show, scheduled to open February 27th and to run through April 11, promises to be an amazing one.  Apparently Cuba has one of the world’s highest concentrations of biodiversity – the NYBG is celebrating that fact with a show filled with not only thousands of orchids, but also “…an allée of palm trees lead[ing] visitors to a replica of a sugar mill covered in blooms, providing a taste of the Cuban countryside.”

Sounds beautiful!  The photos here were taken at a variety of shows at the NYBGs as culled by orchid enthusiast Susan Thing.
