Orchids at the Conservatory
This past Saturday I went to the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh with my family. Both my sister and I carried around our "big" cameras and had lots of fun taking photos. I'm thoroughly enjoying my new lens.
I was thrilled to see many other photographers toting their cameras and yes, I did peek at what camera they owned and their lenses. I might have lens envy and some ideas for future Christmas presents.
We had a fantastic time and went through the Orchid room twice! My favorite though was the bonsai displays. I would guess that working in a conservatory would be quite relaxing. The atmosphere is gentle and soothing. I love the water features and the sound of trickling, oh - they also played the cricket chirping through the speaker system.
My sister bought two little orchids in the gift store because she is fantastic at keeping them alive and blooming! Not me...my talents are in wool. I'm okay with that.
Since January is in the middle of winter days which can be bleak at times, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the orchids and their pops of color.
I hope you enjoyed the flower show.
