In Bloom: Orchid Expo
No one can deny the incredible beauty that orchids possess. And their many different types and colors are all part of nature's wonder. Be captivated by them this weekend at the Tampa Orchid Club's Orchid Expo at USF's Botanical Gardens. The American Orchid Society will be judging the blooms early Saturday morning, so there's an opportunity to purchase award winning flowers. And because orchids can be tricky to keep alive, experts will be discussing orchid culture and care on Saturday at 2 p.m. The event happens from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. $5. 12210 USF Pine Drive, Tampa. (813) 949-7467.
