Five Things: Orchids at The New York Botanical Garden
For those of you who follow along on Instagram, you know that my parents are in town this weekend for a brief little reunion. Whenever they're in town, we always jam-pack the days full of activities - and one of our favorite things to do is to visit museums and see a few special exhibits. We went to the Met on Saturday, which was a ton of fun, but on Sunday, I persuaded them to travel all the way up to the Bronx for the New York Botanical Garden's Orchid Chandeliers exhibit. And, y'all. It's worth the trip, and then some. Orchids hang from every crevasse and corner of the enormous glass greenhouse rooms - a rainbow of blooms falling from the ceiling, clinging to the walls and coming up from the floors. They were draped over things, dripping down and brushing the tops of our heads and shoulders. It was really something else.
