Orchidelirium at the New York Botanical Garden

As longtime readers of this blog know, I am a huge fan (and member) of the New York Botanical Garden. And one of my favorite seasonal events at the New York Botanical Garden is the orchid show, which runs from the end of February through the middle of April.

After missing last year's show, I was eager to catch this year's orchid show, titled Orchidelirium. And it did not disappoint.

Here are some of my favorite photos from this year's show. (One of these days I'll get a book on orchids so I can properly identify the different types.) Enjoy!

Bonus photo: As I was walking through the orchid show, I spied this sign, "Please do not touch the plants," in the center of some very prickly cacti, and just sighed. (It is sad that the garden had to even put up that sign, but you know there was a probably a good reason.)

I have unintentionally killed a few orchids in my past. * People are idiots.
