We had a terrific visit to the New York Botanical Garden on Friday. The morning snow kept just about everyone else away as we lavished in the beauty of this inspiring showcase of Singapore’s national flower. I learned that orchids grow on every continent except Antarctica. The show goes until April 28th. I encourage you to visit. The photo above is my feeble attempt at growing two orchids. They have been alive for over a year so I guess I am doing an okay job. Plus – the cats don’t eat them.

We spent a delightful day at the NYBG where 17 rarely seen Hawaiian paintings by Georgia O’keeffe are on display. The Conservatory is adorned with flowers and plants from Hawaii that influenced these works. The show is on thru October 28th and I encourage you to visit. Don’t miss the short video and of course the paintings (in the Mertz Library) which explains why she went and how she was inspired by the islands.
