I just thought you should know that the best Orchid Show I've ever seen ends tomorrow. It is Patrick Blanc's Vertical Gardens at The New York Botanical Garden. You can read the New York Times Review here but words cannot describe the beauty and art of this show.

I won't bother you with my many hundreds of orchid photos from this year. Just a brief overview of what you can see this weekend. Well perhaps just one orchid photo.

The Palm Court of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory as it will appear until Sunday.

An overview of the rest of Patrick Blanc's vision.

Here's a photo of Patrick Blanc from the first day of vertical Gardens. Very interesting man and I loved how his hair matched the show

If you live in or near New York City than today and tomorrow are your last chances to view Patrick Blanc's latest Vertical Garden at the New York Botanical Garden.

If you don’t live in or near New York, I hear Jet Blue offers decent last minute deals :-)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
