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.

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.

This one is hard to photograph because it is so white it can be difficult to capture the detail in the white leaves. I needed to adjust the highlights and white in photoshop but I think the result is stunning.

Phipps Conservatory Roof Reflections

One of the most wonderful things about the Phipps Conservatory is the construction of the many roofs. The entry is special and beautiful but the real art is in the computer control of the windows, fans and louvers. This allows them to create different habitats for different exhibits in every season.

The reflection of the roof in the pond is a reminder of how the roof and passive solar environment allow this room to be used in all seasons. Even winter.
