I don’t always see the annual St. Paul Winter Carnival Orchid Show every year. But I do try to visit the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory once each winter to get a breath of the tropics and to escape winter even if just for an hour. It is truly heaven on earth inside the conservatory! If you’re interested, here are a couple of posts from previous years’ visits: 2015 and 2014. Today’s visit was a bit unusual in that it’s typically bitterly cold outside and cloudy. While I am thoroughly enjoying the sunshine today, it did make it harder to get good photos but I did get a few.
When I saw the theme for this week’s photo challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to enter for it. Please enjoy my photographic tour of this year’s Orchid Show! Click on each gallery to see larger images.
