Cuba In Flower At The 2010 New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show

Two weeks ago Chris and I went to the annual orchid show at the New York Botanical Garden. The theme for this year's show is "Cuba In Bloom". I usually add notes under most of the photographs with display info and species names but this year I thought I would let the beauty of the show speak for itself. The information about this beautiful tower and statue is listed below on the blue sign....you can click to enlarge that photo or any other that you wish to get a closer look at. Enjoy!!!!












I hope you enjoyed the photos from this years show!!!! If you would like to see photos from my previous visits to the botanical garden, just go to my "out and about" section on the right hand side of my blog under "categories."
