Orchids - The Sexiest Flower

Join us for the New Hampshire Orchid Society's 22nd annual orchid show in Nashua, NH. From 8-9AM the show will be open only to photographers, and will allow use of tripods and flash.

The show is held at the Radisson Hotel in Nashua, NH. The hotel is just off Route 3 at Exit 1 - click here for a map & directions. Admission is $10 for adults (but free for photogs between 8AM-9AM).

Orchid Facts and Triva:
Originating about some 80 million years ago, orchids are a fascinating group. The name is derived from the Greek orchis, which means testicle, so named because of the shape of their bulbous roots. There are about 25,000 different types of orchids, and it's estimated that another 5,000 have yet to be discovered.

You've eaten orchids (as Vanilla), they have inspired books (The Orchid Thief) and movies (Adaptation, based on the book), and were illegal for English women to own for a time because they were considered too sensual.

The largest orchids can grow to 60 feet, weight 2,000 pounds, and produce 10,000 flowers.

Finally, note that I cannot attend due to a previous engagement. If someone would be good enough to step up to organize this even, we'd all be much obliged.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
