Orchid madness!

Looking for a way to beat those winter blues? (Will winter ever end?) Well if it is flowers you crave then I think I have just the answer. If you hurry, you can catch the last weekend of Orchids by Hausermann's annual open house. You can find complete details on their website.

And if you want to figure out how to care for those orchids once you buy them, then stop by the library to browse our collections on indoor orchid care and culture. Interested in painting or drawing orchids? The orchid business? Growing your own? We can help with that too!
