Yesterday we headed to downtown Denver and visited the Denver Botanic Museum. With over 200 orchids on display, the colors and smells were intoxicating. The museum had all the orchids in hanging planters alongside the wall and we all decided the orangery would be the perfect place for a winter wedding.
The room the orchids were in was extremely well-lit, but the temperature surprised me. If I had to guess I’d say it was around 65 degrees. I would have thought the orchids would have needed to be much warmer to flourish, but apparently not.
Here are a few of my favorites.
Which orchid is your favorite? I’d love to have a few potted ones in my kitchen, but I think the white orchid with the pink center is my favorite. How about you?
