Don't miss the orchid show and sale this weekend 2/10/18 and 2/11/18 (always around Valentine's Day!) It is an annual event, justifiably popular because of the beautiful orchid displays,wonderful orchids plants for sale, and educational lectures. The address is Safe Schools Institute 1790 NW Spanish River Blvd, Boca Raton Florida. 10 am- 5pm. $5.00 admission fee, cash only.
Highly recommend this art show! Jerzy Kedziora's balanced sculptures have found their perfect setting among the palms of Fairfield Tropical Garden. For more info (and more photos) go to http://www.fairchildgarden.org/artofbalance
Best Botany Thought #435 (no ,you did not miss the first 434 ideas, I just like to call my best ideas by random numbers 😉!)
Check out the American Horticultural Society Reciprocal Admissions Program because their inexpensive annual pass allows entrance to hundreds of American Gardens including two of my own two favorites, the New York Botanical Garden (in the Bronx, N.Y.) and Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables , FL. Or you can do this the other way around i.e buy an annual pass to New York Botanical Garden, and this includes participation in the American Horticultrual Society Reciprocal Admissions Program!
Katherine Wagner-Reiss has her botany Certificate from the New York Botanical Garden, where she is a volunteer tour guide.
