Jason Gamrath at The Phipps Conservatory

This summer is special at the Phipps Conservatory because there is a special exhibition of the fine art glass sculptures of Jason Gamrath.There are always a few glass sculptures in the eight rooms of the conservatory but this year the exhibition adds over 80 works from the brilliant young artist. Each room is dramatically changed by the addition of his artwork. The show is not to be missed and runs throughout the summer.

I love having a membership at the Phipps because we can visited each season and see an entirely different garden. This summer is special though because there is a special exhibition of the fine art glass sculptures of Jason Gamrath.There are always a few glass sculptures in the eight rooms of the conservatory but this year the exhibition adds over 80 works from the brilliant young artist. Each room is dramatically changed by the addition of his artwork. The show is not to be missed and runs throughout the summer.

Succulent Blooms

This type of succulent which I believe is some sort of aloe plant was in full bloom in February. This was taken at the Los Angeles Arboretum in the Aloe Garden on February 14, 2017.

Cathedral of Learning from Phipps Conservatory

The Phipps Conservatory has a sophisticated power system using solar, passive solar, hydroelectric and wind to power their state of the art Conservatory. This view is from the roof area adjacent to the solar farm and shows their new wind turbine. In the back is the beautiful Gothic Cathedral of Learning of the University of Pittsburgh.

Phipps Spring Flower Show

In Pittsburgh we have one of the best conservatories in the world. The Phipps Conservatory has fourteen different green house rooms connected with walkways. Waterfalls, glass sculptures and benches are scattered throughout and volunteers and employees are there to answer your questions while they maintain the beauty of the environment.

The Spring Flower Show is an excellent time to visit and you still have until the middle of May to catch it in full bloom. Here are a few images form our latest visit.

Palm Reflections

This house sits on private property next to this small lake inside the Los Angeles Arboretum in Glendale. Imagine waking each morning and enjoying this view. Of course you have to deal with the sounds of tourists during the day and the loud honking noise of the peacocks. Still, I think I could handle it.
