grand opening at Phipp's

susiebuckhouse(6)April 1, 2005

If anyone wants to see the new front entrance at phipps Conservatory, the grand opening is on Saturday. Admission is FREE from 11 A.M. until 4 P.M. I am going to renew my membership. I saw some scences on "Pgh. Today", and I'm not sure if I like the new entrance. All of that glass, but I didn't see any plants. Got to see it in person, I guess. Here is the link.

I went last week to see the Spring Flower Show... very nice orchids! (I have some great pictures, maybe I should upload to the gallery?) At that time they were giving out Sweet Alyssum. They were all pretty short, about 1-1.5 inches, stout, lots of leaves.

I do like the new entrance but you're right, it has no plants. My roommate and I were commenting on all the white in there, and the lack of seeds in the gift shop (right now they have an exhibit on natural remedies, but no seeds to grow your own plants).
