This past weekend (and on-going now) we went to the annual Orchid Show at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, MO, otherwise known as "Shaw's Garden". The whole setup was really amazing this year with not just the flowers, but the settings as well. i put my set of 73 pics up on flickr for your dining and dancing pleasure. Who doesn't love pretty flowers.

Fun fact: Orchids require a 15-degree F temperature difference between day and night to bloom which is why they usually bloom in the winter. i did not know that!
