Orchids at the Rawlings Conservatory in Baltimore

The Rawlings Conservatory of Baltimore
Last week during a visit to Baltimore, I had a chance to see the orchids at the Rawlings Conservatory. This historic conservatory was built in 1888, making it the second oldest public conservatory in the US.  Best of all, they have a room dedicated to showcasing orchids in bloom!

  The  ladies at the front desk said that this was a relatively quiet time for orchid blooms, but the little room was still a riot of color.
