    Default visit at phipps conservatory

    Over the weekend I went to Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh. We took lots of pics of course. Sorry I couldn't narrow these down more. And I don't have names. A lot of them had little tags nearby but I wasn't bothering with writing things down And I'm not familiar enough to know what's what. Enjoy.

    Default I miss this place.

    I visited a few times when I lived there.

    In fact, my wallpaper is a photo of myself in the rose garden just outside of the main gate.

    I was there once years ago. I'll be visiting again this year. I'd like to go when all the outdoor areas are bloomed.
