Orchids to Combat Gray Skies

As we await for the snow to recede and our own indigenous plants to awaken from their winter slumber, greenhouses, conservatories, and flower shows can give us that needed glimpse into the coming seasons. A local historic park, Sonnenberg Gardens, is holding its annual orchid show this weekend, March 1 - 3. Each year I visit the show and see orchids of all types and colors to help give me that little "boost" to make it another month when our own wildflowers will begin to put on their show.

If you are in the area, be sure to visit the show - see the Sonnenberg's website for details. If not, enjoy a few sights from last year's show. (Click on the images to see a larger view.)
