a little inspiration




It's been a crazy week for me, so I thought it might be nice to end it with a little inspiration. These are photos that I took a few weeks ago at one of my favorite places in Cincinnati, Krohn Conservatory. Krohn is a huge greenhouse that is architecturally gorgeous and full of breathtakingly lush scenery. I've been going there since I was a child, and I've been trying to take my children there every couple of months, and they enjoy it just as much as I do. 












So gorgeous, right? Mother nature is pretty spectacular. One of these days I'm going to break out my paints and create some paintings based on these photos. Wouldn't that be fun?

If you are ever in the area, you need to schedule a visit to Krohn Conservatory. You won't be sorry!

Thsoe orchids are beautiful. I never got to visit the Observatory. I really wanted to when they had that Brazilian butterfly exhibit.

Hugs!

Thank for the lovely pictures of the orchids. I miss going to conservatories to enjoy the true beauties of our earth.

When I was in college I would go to the university ran "woods" and conservatory when I needed to get away. When I lived near Chicago I would go to the flower shows in the middle of winter when the snow was not fresh, but grey like the sky. It was so refreshing.

I am glad you are sharing this experience with your children.
