We just toured the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh , Pa . 15 gardens under glass plus a few outside. Absolutely stunning! From a fern habitat to butterfly house (magical) to orchid house and so much more. These huge glass and steel houses are beautiful in and of themselves, but then fill them with gigantic plants...what a show. There is a kids garden, vegetable garden and an large area demonstrating sustainable landscape.
Right now they are also featuring glass sculpture by local artists and Chillula (sp?)
If you ever have the chance and you love plants, this is well worth the stop.
Trying to navigate Pittsburgh with the rivers and bridges and layout, not so easy. Use your gps and have a lookout in the seat beside you!
For those of you who like Mother Earth News there is a MEN Fair in Pitt this Sept.
