I'm obsessed with food, flowers, my cat & all things Apple. Aspiring artist & photographer.

So, it turns out the polar vortex pretty much ceases to exist once you step into our Conservatory. That might be due to the fact that Key West is crashing there for a bit, though, and I don’t wanna brag, but, well, yes I do. With thousands of orchids splashing the place with tropical color, it’s like the southernmost point packed up its warmth, hoofed it north, and set up shop in NYC for a spell.

The Orchid Show: Key West Contemporary opens Saturday, March 1, running straight on through April 21. If you’re in the New York metro area, why miss out on an escape from this downright sadistic winter? And if you snag tickets to one of our Orchid Evenings (first one’s March 8!), you get the benefit of strolling through a confetti of orchids and a complimentary drink under our twinkly glasshouse lights. Though I suppose it would also be a complementary drink, since we all know Thing + Cocktail = Better Thing. —MN

Can. Not. Wait.

Bella loves to hide out in my drawer but I’m not too keen on having my clothes clawed so I had what I thought was an inspired idea - cover them over with a towel. Bella was not impressed. She got rid of the towel in a few seconds!

This is her “bugger that” face.

First sketch in a very, very long time. Couple notes to self: need Pencil by 53 in order to blur background and not a good idea to let your cat “help” you.
