Another nighttime trip to Phipps.

The same night as the art show, we took in the winter show at Phipps Conservatory. I love going to Phipps at night. It's magical. It's a beautiful enough place in the daytime with the flowers and plants in the way it smells and feels inside. At night it takes on a whole new dimension. As usual, I took a lot of pictures.

There were indoor and outdoor displays.

We were hoping they would have some of these in the gift shop, but they didn't.

Here's Bob in the tunnel, sort of.

As always the orchids were my favorite.

The train set was very elaborate and well done as always. The theme this year appeared to be Jurassic Park. There were dinosaurs sprinkled throughout the whole display. There were a lot of amusing interactive features as well. You could blow up the mineshaft, or make the volcano erupt.

Phipps Conservatory continues to be one of my favorite places, especially during the darkest part of the year.
