Grand Valley Orchid Society Show 2016

on

Jan. 17, 2016: The weather has been wacky here in Michigan lately and the Grand Valley Orchid Society Show out at the Frederik Meijer Gardens was greatly benefited by it this weekend–it was actually not arctic conditions outside! With the relatively beautiful weather outside, we were able to take home some equally beautiful plants.
