The Fall Flower Show at Phipps Conservatory

October 29, 2013  •  4 Comments

My favorite season holds all my favorite colors: AUTUMN. There is a wonderful place in Pittsburgh called Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens and I was asked by them to provide photos of their 2013 Fall Flower Show for their publications. I am over-the-moon excited about this opportunity and I can not hide it! In two hours, I had 500 photos and now have to choose the best way to share about 100 of them.

 

The Grand Entrance

The lobby immediately grabs your attention with these colorful pots and matching flowers, and a descriptive card launches the theme.

 

Once upstairs and through the doors, this room greets you with pumpkins! And abundance of orange, yellow, green, and popping purple!

 

Next, I moved into the Garden Railroad. This year's theme is Prehistoric!

 

Next I entered a room full of different types of chrysanthemums. This room had less autumn color, but was gorgeous nonetheless.

Clearly not a mum, but that last one I couldn't resist! And no, I don't know what it is! Feel free to share if you know!

 

For the Grand Finale, I'm so glad I came to this room last or I probably would not have left it! The scene literally took my breath away.

                 A peek into the Desert Room!

 

 

I can't send enough praise for this show, the people who put it all together, and the breathtaking displays.

If you have the chance, go see it all for yourself!
