Pittsburgh: Phipps Conservatory

With all of the Christmas hustle and bustle, my husband and I managed to claim a couple of hours to ourselves when we were in Pittsburgh. We spent our time at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, a really beautiful place any time of year. Here are some of my favorite photos…

Jay’s favorite room: the Garden Railroad exhibit. The guy loves his model trains. :) Above is a replica of Phipps. The conservatory, founded in 1893, is a giant steel and glass Victorian greenhouse.

Phipps, thank you for a lovely visit. It’s always nice to come back.

On another note, I’ve finally updated my blog theme. After two years, I thought it was time. :) Thank you all again for taking a peek and following along.
