The New York Botanical Gardens is holding its 18th annual Orchid show from February 15th through April 19th at its magical grounds in the Bronx. Just a short drive from Rockland, you can be mesmerized by thousands of flowers that even Timothy Leary couldn’t have dreamt up on his best day. The colors and patterns never cease to amaze me.

Leatham’s bold and colorful vision unfolds through captivating installations and designs, transforming each gallery of the exhibition in the historic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory into a different color experience and visual effect, like the turn of a kaleidoscope.
Thousands of orchids provide bursts of forms and colors—in purples, reds, oranges, and hot pink—revealed through overhead arches, vine-inspired ribbons, mirrored sculpture, dramatic lighting, and other design surprises, along with artistic embellishments that include soaring high bamboo gleaming in lime, tangerine, lemon, and more.
