I loved the topiary above and check out these framed wall planters, left, filled with a fern and a trailing philodendron.
On to the Michigan Orchid Society show......(To find out about the Michigan Orchid Society, see their website here.)
This sign greeted us as we walked in from a COLD Michigan day. And we proceeded on to the show....
There were so many orchids, we couldn't take it all in! And some of the displays smelled heavenly. I'm going to show you some of my favorites and you can see the rest on my Pinterest page.

I was taking pictures of the orchid to the right, and was admiring it for its unique color and beauty. The owner walked up and had brought along her family to enjoy the show. Her granddaughter was so proud of her and she was so nonchalant about the fact that she was growing spectacular orchids.

The orchid show includes a flower arrangement section. I couldn't cut my orchids to use them in an arrangement, but they are beautiful.

I hope you enjoyed this quick tour through the orchid show and garden center. It was a wonderful day, enjoyed with someone who loves plants, too. Find a gardening friend, (or two or three), and take a garden road trip. It was a great way to spend a cold, spring day in Michigan!
