Orchid Showcase 

When: Jan. 8-Feb. 24 2014

Orchids' sexual organs are fused into a single center column; the flowers are bilaterally symmetric; and the number of orchid species more than doubles the number of bird species. For these and other reasons, people go ape over orchids. And to think, the Denver Botanic Gardens (1007 York St., Denver, will let you see a couple hundred of them for free with admission, through Feb. 24. The Orchid Showcase is but one attraction — two art shows are currently up at the DBG as well — so consider taking the drive and dropping $12.50 (with reduced prices for seniors and kids). — Kirk Woundy
