2005 New York International Orchid Show Rockefeller Center

Since the Philadelphia Flower Show is coming up in a few weeks, I thought I would share these old photos with you. They used to have an Orchid Show in Rockefeller Center and here was the write up from Rockefeller Center's site in 2005:

Rockefeller Center once again became the orchid capital of the world during the 25th Annual New York International Orchid Show. Visitors viewed beautiful, award-winning orchid displays in the tented Rink area and thousands of orchids that were on sale in the Concourse from the world’s best orchid vendors. The show included an international, juried orchid art competition and was the only show in the United States to contain a fragrance competition and display. Admission to the display area was $5.00.

Here were some of my shots from that day, taken with an older film camera, can't remember which one but they are all just amazing: 
these displays were inside Rockefeller Center 

such beauty and color ....they were amazing 

my friend and I felt very lucky to see this show as in 2008 in was postponed indefinitely  
I love her hair and stockings !!  
the whole floor, where you would normally ice skate, was filled with orchids!! 
it not only smelled amazing but many winning flowers as well  
I think Orchids are one of the most beautiful flowers  
over 70 exhibitors showed off their best orchids  
the grand champion trophy had a prize of $5,000 which was nice...this was not the winner but still gorgeous  
I hope they decide to bring the show back because it was really just so magical.......

These are so beautiful flowers! Did you ever get to see them in a botanic garden or something? I once went to the Botanic Garden in Singapore and there is a special area only with Orchids. So beautiful, I can tell you!!
