In honor of the 2016 Orchid Show opening up at the New York Botanical Garden this weekend, I’m posting a Throwback Thursday pic from my first visit to the Orchid Show in 2009. My husband (boyfriend at the time) and I attended that show’s final weekend on a whim, and I completely fell in love with these plants. This photo is from the main showcase room—the centerpiece, if you will—inside the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. The orchid display was literally breathtaking.


I’ve attended at least once every year since and have a ton of photos to prove it!

Are you going to the Orchid Show at NYBG this year? If so, check out my planning tips on my orchid blog before you go!
