Last year we had some really nice warm days during the month of February. One of those days we decided to take a trip to Longwood Gardens to see the Orchid Extravaganza. We would like to go again this year if we get a nice day.
To hold us over, on Saturday we took a trip to Hershey Gardens because they were having a three day orchid fest. No way does it compare to Longwood, but it was an interesting day anyway.
It has been a few years since I was at the gardens so I wasn’t aware that the location of the entrance had changed. It worked out well because we went in right where the orchid display was.
I admit that I don’t know much if anything about flowers. I was amazed at the different types and sizes of orchids. I guess I have a mental image of what orchids look like so some of them surprised me. Here are a few of the ones we saw.
I did like the coloring of this one.
To me, this one looked like a face.
Here’s a close up.
Of course vendors had flowers for sale.
Around the perimeter of the room there were displays set up by the vendors and different orchid societies.
I am still hoping that we will get a chance to get back to Longwood Gardens while the orchid show is still there. It runs through March. Bit if we don’t, this trip to Hershey will do.
