Orchid Extravaganza at Longwood Gardens
I had a wild time exploring Longwood Gardens' Orchid Extravaganza earlier in March. In addition to all the beautiful flowers in their ongoing Orchid House, an extra 6,500 orchids are arranged throughout the Conservatory! The red and yellow petals of this tropical orchid plant made me feel like I was in a jungle instead of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.
Don't delay venturing out of Delaware if you want to experience the Orchid Extravaganza, too. It ends March 27.
Aquariann enjoys watching petals grow much more than paint dry. That's why she's a flower photographer and illustrator instead of a painter. She welcomes all artists to join her weekly Flower Friday hop to share their pretty pictures on her other blog, the art and tree chatter of aquariann.
