This orchid photo was taken during Longwood Gardens Annual Winter Escape and Orchid Extravaganza in March of 2008.
Orchids are particular favorites of ours when we go out to take photographs, so planning a visit to Longwood Gardens [one of our favorite spots on the face of the earth] during their Orchid Extravaganza was a no brainer. It was the first time that we had ever seen Longwood at this time of year, and during the orchid festival. It was spectacular and a true treat at this time of year when it seems like the entire world has turned gray and brown.
