From Hope S. Philbrick of Getaways for Grownups:

“Winter giving you the shivers?

Feel the warm promise of spring at an exclusive new exhibit at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont, North Carolina.

Step inside the tropical Orchid Conservatory, peel off your coat, and feel a rush of joy while standing face to face hundreds of brightly colored orchids. There are bold displays—cascading down rock walls, crowded into clay pots, hanging from trees, and more—but take time to explore or risk missing some small discreet beauties.”
