Most of us in New York City feel like we’ve been in the grips of an endless winter. Even now as we’re drawing towards the middle of March, spring feels far away. Escape the cold, gray days to a tropical paradise at the New York Botanical Garden with The Orchid Show: Key West Contemporary. The 2014 annual NYBG flower show at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory is inspired by “a modernist Key West estate garden.” The exhibition runs March 1 – April 21 and features a full calendar of events, including musical performances and “The Key West Poetry Walk” highlighting the work of renowned Key poets, as well as the ever-popular, romantic “Orchid Evenings.”
