I know, it seems like this winter will never end. Every time you go outside snow is in the air, ice is on the ground, and your hair freezes. But spring really isn't that far away. Get yourself excited for the return of flowers and warmer temps with Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Site's annual Orchid Show & Sale, taking place Friday-Sunday, March 1-3, at the site in Canandaigua.
The Sonnenberg greenhouses will be filled with all kinds of exotic orchid blooms. In addition to just seeing the pretty flowers (and getting some warm vibes from the greenhouses), educational seminars on orchid care will take place at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Orchid varieties will also be for sale at the gift shop if you want to take one of the fancy flowers home. If you have orchids of your own that could use some TLC, repotting services will be available for a donation on Friday.
Sonnenberg is located at 151 Charlotte St. in Canandaigua. The event runs 10 a.m.-5 p.m. each day, with wine tastings Saturday noon-4 p.m. and Sunday 1-4 p.m. Admission to the event is $5. For more information call 394-4922 or visit sonnenberg.org.
