Cathedral of Learning April 10,2019

April 10 is my birthday and one of the ways we celebrated was by going to see The Spring Flower Show at The Phipps Conservatory. It was such a beautiful day I didn’t want to go inside. A shot of the Cathedral of Learning form the walkway leading into the Phipps.

A Perfect Bloom in Our Pittsburgh Garden

Each year I photograph the blooms in our garden and at other gardens around Pittsburgh. My trained eye can usually find a problem with the bloom. Part of the leaf is missing, it has a spot, a bug is eating it or the weather got to it before I did.

This one looks like a pretty good daffodil to me, close to a perfect bloom.

Today’s Daffodils in Regent Square

It was raining so much the other day I thought our daffodils would get beaten to a pulp. In today’s warm sun they look just fine however.

In some parts of the United States you can’t grow daffodils outside. Bulbs require a period of cold and in warm climates they force them to bloom inside and they can be purchased as annuals. In the northeast though, they begin to poke their heads out of the grown and as Spring arrives pride fresh color reminding us of the circle of life.

I love the change of seasons and each Spring I find fresh hope by watch our city change from the drop of winter to the bright colors of Spring.

Croton at the Phipps Conservatory

Nothing is better when its freezing outside than visiting The Phipps Conservatory Orchid Show. The orchid room is full of blooming orchids and so warm and moist you won’t want to leave.

I assume that everything in The Orchid Room is an orchid but that is not so. Fortunately I always visit with my wife who is somewhat of an expert. There are many succulents and tropical plants like this beautiful croton.
