The arrangement of the orchid presentation was beautiful!

Fine. Show always nice shot of spring. However paid $17 for tkt via Goldstar and had to choose specific date. Could have bought at garden for only $18 (senior rate) and no need to pre-purchase. Probably wouldn't buy via Goldstar next year...continued
