The Orchid Show at New York Botanical Gardens

If you have the time, be sure to stop by the New York Botanic Gardens "Orchid Show", which is on through April 9th, 2017. I had just enough time to sneak by to do a Member's Preview before I shove off to Costa Rica, where I'll actually be visiting another orchid botanic garden, and see some in the wild.  

For those that don't live in New York or won't be able to make the show, I capture a smidgen of the experience below. Hope you enjoy!
