Exotic and Enchanting Orchids

It was an absolute treat to visit Washington DC for the annual cherry blossom festival.   Even while I work with flowers on a daily basis, the sheer abundance and the saturation of color throughout the city is just something else. I was bright eyed with with a wide smile for a full 24 hours! I couldn’t have been happier…that is until I discovered that the US Botanic Gardens is currently exhibiting an Orchids Mystique showcase of exotic orchids from around the globe! I was flabbergasted by my good fortune and wanted to share these beautiful creatures with you.
