Orchids at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum

Dag nab it! I missed the orchid display at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory this year.  I guess I never saw a notification for this year’s display.  Bummer!  But never fear, I was alerted to another orchid display at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, about a thousand miles away from home!  Yea, that’s a bit of an exaggeration.  It’s about a 30 minute drive southwest of home. And it’s a lovely drive with lots of open spaces and many, many lakes.

We arrived to a very full parking lot so we wondered what else was going on at the Arboretum.  Other than the orchids there was a farmer’s market in the Oswald Visitor Center so that must be what the rest of the visitors were doing there. There weren’t that many orchids in the visitor center so we found our way to their conservatory. A warm, sunny room full of colors!  Before you get to that room there is a walkway full of succulents including many cactus plants. Naturally I took a bunch of photos, the nicest ones are displayed below.  I hope you enjoy!!
