Six On Saturday, 2-10-18: Orchid Mania at the Cleveland Botanical Garden

Feeling a little down, with snow piling up around you? This year’s orchid celebration at the Cleveland Botanical Garden runs through March 11th. It’s sure to take you away to the magical world of tropical temperatures, colors, and fragrances.

Dubbed “Orchid Mania,” the glasshouse and common areas of the building are filled with these gorgeous blooms.  Hundreds of the orchids were donated by Just Add Ice®.  You can find many varieties for sale in the Garden gift shop.

Who knew these beauties come in so many colors, patterns, and sizes?

Personally, I love these patterned varieties that remind me of a leopard’s coat.

These blooms look as though they have faces, straight out of Alice in Wonderland.

You’ll find cafe tables adorned with ultraviolet orchids that glow.

Hope you’ve enjoyed a little respite from February.  See more garden updates from around the world at our host, The Propagator.
