Conservatory of Flowers

I last wrote about the Conservatory of Flowers in my ACT THREE. outfit post here. It’s one of my favorite places to go in the winter when it’s too cold to (comfortably) spend an extended period of time outside. A lot of indoor activities involve going to the movies, staying home, etc., which I love, but sometimes those activities make me sleepy. The Conservatory of Flowers is a great indoor activity that still gets you in touch with nature. And it doesn’t make you feel all sluggish like other sedentary indoor activities do. The interior is kept in the steamy 80 degree temps with lots of humidity for the plant life to thrive. It’s heavenly!

This particular day, it was drizzly and rainy and overall just pretty dreary.

My favorite section is the potted plants. They have every kind of orchid you can imagine.

The Conservatory of Flowers currently has a special exhibit called Garden Railway, which is a miniature model of San Francisco in 1915 complete with a railway. I don’t know about you guys, but I geek out over this stuff. I LIVE for miniature models and gingerbread houses and dollhouses. The steam train was adorable!

These pink peppercorn-looking things were SO COOL. They really looked like peppercorns, except they were pink. I wish I knew what they were called but there was no label for them! Can anyone help me out?
