A few flowers for your tax day

This Saturday night I went up to the orchid show at the New York Botanical Gardens for their Orchid Evenings. It's essentially the same as going to the orchid show during the day except that they play music and give you cocktails. The flowers were just as beautiful but I found the addition of some sort of mescal concoction to be a welcome one. I don't have too much to say that isn't better shown in photos. Orchids tend to speak for themselves.

I was sorely tempted to buy a moth orchid from the gift shop (moth orchids are apparently the least finicky and hardest to accidentally kill of all orchids), but until I figure out how to keep Dinah from eating my existing plants, I probably shouldn't invest $30 in a new one.

I had some photos of us at said orchid show as well, but they're on Sam's phone, which is with Sam, so you'll just have to trust we were there. Happy tax day, all!


  1. Lovely! Makes me want to start painting flowers again.

  2. Feel free to use any of these for a new painting. I enjoyed your orchid series from last time!

  3. Preeetty! And I feel ya with your kitty eating your plants. I love getting flowers from Kirk, but Arwen always ends up attacking them. Kinda takes the joy of having them in the house.
