Short Film: Orchid Show at the Chicago Botanic Garden


Over the weekend my husband and I visited the Orchid Show at the Chicago Botanic Garden. It was the perfect date to escape the cold to celebrate the orchids that grow in Asia, as well as the the culture and art of different Asian countries. Asia in Bloom features exhibits that will show places in which orchids have thrived in the wild and have been part of everyday life. This exhibition is truly a must see!

An orchid in a deep forest sends out its fragrance even if no one is around to appreciate it“. – Confucius

In the Shimmer of Silk Lanterns…Look for sunlit orchids under colorful handmade parasols, listen for the trickle of water from a bamboo spout, and take in a Japanese-style dry garden surrounded by burnt cedar in shou sugi ban tradition. The Chicago Botanic Garden’s Orchid Show is an homage to the rich culture of Asia and its stunning array of native orchids. If you are from the Chicago area I can strongly recommend that you go visit and don’t forget to bring you camera!

Escape winter and unwind at the Chicago Botanic Garden! The exhibit runs until March 25 from 10AM until 4PM.

    I loved your video! I’m a huge fan of orchids, even though I don’t own any plants at the moment, but I like to admire them whenever I get the chance 🙂
