Orchid Extravaganza at Longwood Gardens

Longwood Gardens is featuring their amazing "Orchid Extravaganza" exhibit through March 30, 2014. I took these photos on a recent trip with my husband and hope you enjoy them.
Longwood Gardens staff members created these neat pyramid-like orchid walls to anchor one of the main conservatory displays. If you look closely you can see some giant orchid balls hanging from the ceiling too.
Here's a shot featuring the orchid balls. They were much larger than the photos convey and filled with beautiful blooming orchids.
Another highlight was the "orchid meadow" which featured many different types of beautiful orchids blooming in a small field-like setting.
There were six of these modern art type orchid sculptures (the first photo in this post has a close up of the one in the middle of this shot). 
Here's the conservatory display from the opposite side. You can see the potted palm trees more easily from this direction (and the orchid wall/pyramids in the far background). I hope you enjoyed this mini photo tour of Longwood Garden's Orchid Extravaganza and I'd love to hear your thoughts on the photos. Which was your favorite? Come back soon for some orchid close up (macro) photos!

May God bless and keep you!
