People Enjoy the Second Annual Eastern Iowa Orchid Show
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Sunday was the last chance for flower enthusiasts in Eastern Iowa to see displays of a popular flower. The Second Annual Eastern Iowa Orchid Show and Sale was held at the Noelridge Park Greenhouse in Cedar Rapids.
It was a chance for people to check out the exhibits which featured orchids from Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and other surrounding states. One Eastern Iowa Orchid Society Member said the show is unique because patrons can get an up-close look at the flower.
"It's a little different than just being on the internet, you can see these on the internet but its kind of fun to come and look at an orchid right here, to smell it, to enjoy the fragrance," Nile Dusdieker, Eastern Iowa Orchid Society Member said.
Visitors were also able to buy the flowers. Judges from the American Orchid Society were also there to evaluate the exhibits and the individual flowers themselves.
