Tired of snow, cold, slush and salt? Go to the tropics this weekend in Nashua, NH. The 28th annual NH Orchid Society Show, called “February Follies” this year, is at the Courtyard Marriot. It will offer your senses a blast of warm and tropical air, and hundreds of gorgeous blossoms.
The show opens Friday at 1pm and runs until 7pm. Saturday it is open 9 to 5, and Sunday 9 to 4. Admission is $10 or $8 for seniors and children under 2 are free. Or you can get a 3-day pass for $15.
Orchids can be easy to grow!
Orchids, or some of them, are easy to grow. Blossom stems often display blooms for months, not days or weeks. There are educational workshops on Saturday and Sunday, including “Basics of Orchid Care and Repotting” at noon on Saturday, and “Orchids 101” at 11am on Sunday.
Orchids and supplies will be for sale, and orchid enthusiasts will be competing for prizes on Friday. Dealers will be coming from as far away as Ecuador and Taiwan for this show and sale. So don’t miss it. Stop complaining about winter, and get and have some fun.
