RBG’s Spring Orchid Show

It’s March. Time to start thinking about putting winter behind us. To that end, the Royal Botanical Gardens held their annual Spring Orchid Show and Sale this weekend. Hundreds of orchids, sales, seminars, art, vendors, and an opportunity for photographers to plant themselves in front of a beautiful flower and hone their craft. Here’s a look at the promise of warmer weather. – Barry Gray
