Last week for at least the fourth (maybe fifth?) year in a row my mom and I visited the New York Botanical Garden during Orchid Show time to celebrate her birthday.  My mom raises orchids at home and I just love watching her face LIGHT UP as we walk by all of the beautiful plants and orchids inside the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.  She can tell you the name of practically everything she sees.  It’s really impressive.  Geeky maybe, but also super cool.  Happy Birthday to my mom and thanks, NYBG! As usual, we loved the show.

Yesterday I went to the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.  My mom and I have made it a tradition to go every year in celebration of her birthday and, as always, it was SPECTACULAR.  You should definitely go if you live in New York!
