Flowers are like teenagers, blooming gracefully into adulthood so they can brighten up otherwise lifeless cubicles. Witness the budding innocence of nature with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to The Calgary Orchid Show at the Triwood Community Centre (a $20 value). The show takes place Saturday, October 15 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, October 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Foothills Orchid Society entrances attendees with exceptional and fragrant blooming orchids and demonstrates techniques for at-home gardening to botany aficionados and novices alike. Entitled Orchids for Everyone, the show exhibits diverse blooms from local and international societies, Foothills Orchid Society's 200 members, individual enthusiasts, and vendors such as Ching Hua Orchids and Garden Slippers. During cultural presentations, society members dispense advice to participants interested in cultivating their own orchids or assembling flower-petal mosaics of their favourite prime minister. Vendors present bountiful arrays of orchids at the sales area for patrons to tend to at home. The event organizers supply free parking and soothing hand ointments for those who swing to the show via vine.
