If you are ever in Pittsburgh and love flowers, take time to visit Phipp’s Conservatory. I have visited the conservatory with my husband and his family during multiple seasons over the past few years. Each visit has been unique. Several years ago, we toured during a Chihuly glass exhibit. Last fall, we sat through an Indian spice session in the Indian Rain Forest exhibit and then toured the Center for Sustainable Landscapes. This year, we visited during the winter display featuring decked out Christmas trees, poinsettias galore, a “snowman” wedding made out of air plants (bromeliads) and more! Enjoy the photos below – don’t ask me the names of all the orchids because I couldn’t tell you!
