Krohn Conservatory Flowers and Crib


Just a little floral inspiration for you today...
Over Christmas break, Christmas eve in fact, we went to the Krohn Conservatory for their holiday display. They also have a Nativity scene with real sheep, donkey, cow, but statues for Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We try to go every year. Above are Chickee, our daughter, age 8, and Chief our son, age 7. Those are nicknames as I try not to use their real names online. In this photo, they are in the Bonsai tree room at the Conservatory.

But after the Nativity, the next biggest attraction is the poinsettias. They are gorgeous.
But I love the Orchid room the best...
the rich and pure colors, the delicacy...
I have no idea what this tall, strong, flute-like flower is, but it's a showstopper :) See the orange trees in the background? Walking into the hot, humid conservatory is like a little blast of rain forest in the middle of winter. It has been around 14 degrees here this week. Tomorrow, I'm going to show you what fiber-related gift I received for Christmas! (And it wasn't even from me!)

I think the tall red flower in your last picture is probably an amyrillis. Those poinsettias were beautiful!

The flower is an Amaryllis and it is beautiful as are all the rest of the flowers. I bet that was an awesome display and that your children loved it.
