The Winter Flower Show at Phipps Conservatory has a Nutcracker theme this year. But, as usual, it’s just an excuse to show off mounds of Poinsettias and countless other flowers. After you’ve taken in the Poinsettias, you might want to look out for the various other species of Euphorbia that the gardeners have sprinkled through the displays as a sort of botanical in-joke.
This delightful miniature Victorian conservatory can be found in the Orchid Room.
Sometimes the scenes in the garden railroad (in the South Conservatory) repay a closer look.
This is the first time old Pa Pitt has seen a clock with a frame made of succulents.
