The Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden
The Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden enters its 16th year beginning Saturday, March 3.
Belgian floral artist Daniel Ost, known as "the Picasso of flower arranging," organized thousands of orchids and other flowers for the exhibition.
Ost said the orchids in the garden are rarely used in the floral art world and he set out to do a "totally new" thing.
"I will do only things nobody has ever done," Ost said.

Thousands of orchids and other flowers are in bloom at the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory as the 16th annual Orchid Show begins Saturday, March 3.
The New York Botanical Garden was founded in 1891 and is now a National Historic Landmark and the largest botanical garden in any U.S. city.
Belgian floral artist Daniel Ost crafted a series of installations for The Orchid Show.
Each installation is designed to celebrate the "complex beauty" of the flowers.
While working in France, Ost was hailed as "the international star of floral decoration."
Ost said it is important to him that his floral arrangements "touch the emotions of people."
Ost's large-scale artworks were conformed to the Victorian-style Enid A. Haupt Conservatory to complement the architecture of the building.
