Last month I met up with two of my best friends, Kristie and CJ, in Pittsburgh. You might recognize them from previous posts like this one or this one. A lot has changed since then. CJ now has an adorable little boy who we got to meet for the first time and Kristie has a little boy on the way! CJ lives in Pittsburgh and suggested that we spend the afternoon at the Phipps Conservatory.
The Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is a public garden which has numerous indoor and outdoor gardens. The conservatory is energy efficient and a leader in environmental sustainability. I especially loved the addition of the Chihuly glass pieces to the greenery. Even if you don’t have a passion for plants, it is a worthwhile way to spend a couple hours if you are in the area.
