This weekend is your last chance to see Orchid Extravaganza, which closes on Sunday at 6:00 pm. It might still feel like winter outside, but you will find spring inside our Conservatory! http://longwoodgardens.org/events-and-performances/events/orchid-extravaganza

It's a beautiful weekend in the Gardens... the blue-poppies are in bloom, early spring bulbs are popping up outdoors, and Orchid Extravaganza is still on view!
