Orchid Showcase

When: Jan. 9-Feb. 23 2015

Winter's officially arrived, with its bare trees, heavy socks and side-order of depression. Which means that a trip north is in order to the Butterfly Pavilion (6252 W. 104th Ave., Westminster, butterflies.org), where you can spend the morning in a tropical rainforest surrounded by floating life forms. Grab lunch somewhere in The Big City, then mosey over to Denver Botanic Gardens for the annual Orchid Showcase (1007 York St., tinyurl.com/oeakerp). There you can commune with hundreds of exotic blossoms tucked in among the Garden's citrus collection. There now. All better. — Mary Jo Meade
