When we walked through the Climatron last weekend, we saw some familiar plants, but also some I don’t remember seeing before. I can’t decide if they’ve added some new varieties since the last time we were there (which was at least 15 months ago), or if it’s just been so long that I’ve forgotten what we normally see!
Maybe it’s just because we didn’t get to go to the Missouri Botanical Garden last spring, but every flower I see this year is like greeting an old friend! Very “Edelweiss,” don’t you think?
The seasons change so quickly in the midwest, but these pictures help me hang onto spring a little while longer!
It’s time to take a look at the brightest spot in all the month of February…the Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden!
First things first…a glimpse of the stars of the show: The flowers themselves! We’ve been going to the Orchid Show for several years now, and I’m still always amazed by how many different kinds of flowers they showcase!
The rest of the scenery is always beautiful, and like the flowers, always different:
My favorite part of this year’s Orchid Show, however, were the headdresses showcased throughout the exhibit. They are very different from anything I’ve seen at the Orchid Show in the past, and really fit with this year’s theme of Flora Mesoamerica:
I’m sure we’ll visit at least once more before the show wraps up on March 22, because half the fun is seeing how they rotate new flowers in throughout its run!
Yesterday was the final day of this year’s Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden. I already shared a few pictures, but here is one last look at the beautiful flowers that were on display this year:
Here’s a look at a few of the highlights from this year’s Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden:
I love that no matter how many years we go, or how many times in one year we visit, we always see something new!
