Lauritzen Gardens, well known for its plants and flowers, hosted something very special on Saturday, the 27th Annual Omaha Orchid Show and Sale.
Dozens and dozens packed into the Great Hall to take a look at an enormous variety of orchids. Growers from all over the Midwest put their flowers up for competition and others for sale.
Visitors could even ask the orchid experts for tips. It was an event that brought out the biggest fans of flowers. "What better chance can you be around beautiful flowers and if you're looking for something unique, something different and so it just makes everybody happy," said David Bird of Bird's Botanicals in Kansas City.
