It’s like entering a giant flower shop, as everything there is built/made of something living. There are seas of poinsettias, amaryllis flowers, and more! Live pine trees, carnations, lighted fountains, giant ornamented swags, Christmas trees, more nutcrackers. It’s like a giant playland. It’s playful, it smells amazing. Almost like a “Nutcracker” dream come to life. It was different this year than last, and when I arrived they were still working on making the polar bears fluffy. There were two train sets that ran around a pretty rocking horse, with giant presents underneath. There were Nutcrackers guarding a Christmas tree, and a fountain that sprayed red and green colored water (I’m sure it was just lights, but go with me, folks). There’s a giant candy-cane forest, polar bears, and of course, a reindeer drawn sleigh. I really don’t think I captured the true essence of the Conservatory through my pictures, but I gave it the old College try.
As per the last week, we’ll use the Flickr Photo Stream Gallery- so click on one picture and it will give you the option to click through them all!
PS. Later today we’ll blog our way through some yumminess!
