US Botanic Garden and Smithsonian Orchid Exhibit Opens January 21-April 2, 2006
Two of the nation’s premier conservatories in Washington D.C. will join with the National Capital Orchid Society to provide visitors with a great experience at the USBG Conservatory. The exhibit, “Simply Sublime: Orchids in an Art-Deco Garden”, will feature orchids from the two conservatories. The NCOS will provide exhibits and workshops on growing orchids in the home for those who wish to learn more about orchids.
UPDATE: I was able to attend this exhibit and recommend it to those who are both artists and orchid lovers. It is an art exhibit using orchids as the colors. Don't miss it if you are in the Washington area!

The New York Botanical Garden, The Orchid Show, Opens February 25-April 2, 2006
The New York Botanical Garden’s magnificent “The Orchid Show: An Exhibition and Sale of Fine Orchids” will be held in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory starting February 25. The show has been scheduled for an additional week this year due to the huge success of the exhibit in prior years.
In addition to attending one of the most outstanding shows in the country, you will be able to purchase orchids and orchid gifts from the Shop in the Garden. You will be extremely happy with the quality of the products they carry. I recommend the souvenir book of the orchid show -- in itself a work of art!
Visit The New York Botanical Garden for more information.
