delirium. noun. 1. a more or less temporary disorder of the mental faculties, as in fevers, disturbances of consciousness, or intoxication, characterized by restlessness, excitement, delusions, hallucinations, etc. 2. a state of violent excitement or emotion.

Orchidelirium is the name of the orchid exhibit at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. From the definition above (c/o dictionary.com), I should have had a rather intense experience and possibly hurt people while I was there. That is not exactly what happened. My self-definition would be a temporary disorder (disorder? … that word sounds so negative!) of the mental faculties, through intoxication (sensory – sight, smell, touch … I totally ignored the “do not touch the plants” signs), characterized by excitement. Hmmm, I kinda like the dictionary.com definition better …

And here’s some other magical plantness we saw amongst the tropical rain forest of the Bronx. So much natural beauty and detail to observe and ponder …
