Totally Tropical at Kew

From February 4 – March 4, the world’s most prestigious botanical gardens is putting on a “Tropical Extravaganza.” On the outskirts of London, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew has set up an exotic show. Among the 6500 tropical plants on display, there are over 2700 orchids. Floral arrangements represent the forces of nature: fire, earth, water, and air.

For those of us who can’t make it to the UK, the BBC has a video tour of the show which highlights lots of Vandas, Phals, Oncidiums, and Miltonias. It’s an explosion of color that provides a great remedy for gloomy winter weather.
