Phipps Conservatory

We took a trip with Dave’s parents to beautiful Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh, PA. Among the wonderful gardens in their enormous Victorian greenhouses, Phipps has an orchid room and a Thai rainforest exhibit. Lots were in bloom in the orchid room, but none were in bloom in the Thai exhibit.

    I love Phipps Conservatory! It’s a beautiful and very large Victorian glass building, they have the most wonderful displays and gardens. I haven’t seen the new Thai exhibit yet, but I know it will be beautiful. Everyone should visit Phipps if they are near Pittsburgh.
