Do They Drink Vanilla Juleps?

Ghost Orchid This weekend the Rhode Island Orchid Society is hosting its eighth annual Orchid Derby in the Botanical Center in Roger Williams Park — open today and tomorrow with a lecture on growing orchids at 1pm on both days. Admission is included with admission to the Botanical Center ($3 adults, $1 children).  Pictured here is the elusive ghost orchid, the subject of Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief and the great movie Adaptation with Nicholas Cage. (Well… maybe the first 100 minutes were great, then it kind of runs off the rails. Still worth renting.)

Saturday, 10am to 3pm, Sunday 11am to 4pm, Botanical Center, Roger Williams Park
