An orchid show helps bring color to the gray of winter skies

Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh, PA is always fun to visit during winter weather. Viewing the colorful and exotic Orchids, as well as other tropical plants, provides a nice respite from winter ice and snow.

If you're visiting the Pittsburgh area and would like to visit the botanical gardens, Phipps is located just beyond Carnegie Museum and CMU, next to Schenley Park. Plant collections range from seasonal flowers to cacti, bonsai, ferns, succulents, and a wide range of tropical plants. Themed displays include intricate brick work, fountains, waterfalls and reflecting pools.

Outdoor gardens are open during warm weather. During our visit, one wedding was in progress while another wedding garden was being decorated.
