If you have a case of the Mondays, these beautiful pictures from The Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden should help



Every year, the New York Botanical Garden commissions a floral designer to curate their Orchid Show. Being that this is the 16th year that NYBG has filled their historic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory (floor to ceiling) with elaborate installations and magnificent floral designs, its evident that The Orchid Show is one of great popularity among anthophiles. Each year the show brings us a new designer and unique series of installations.

The 2018 edition of the show has called upon Belgian floral designer, Daniel Ost who is said to use flowers as a means of expression. While Ost was trained in Belgium and the Netherlands, his true mentor is one of the grand masters of Ikebana (the art of Japanese flower arrangement), Noboru Kurisaki. Drawing inspiration from Japanese culture, his installation highlights several known Japanese elements including the Bamboo arranged grids and the incorporation of Kokedama suspended overhead.

Take a look at some of the amazing photos below, but I would recommend taking a trip to the Bronx to check it out for yourself. The Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden is open through April 22nd.
