florida vacation

Sunflowers on a White Cloth; casein tempera on panel; 10" x 8"

It's called a poor man's Florida vacation - visiting the Como Conservatory in the middle of winter.  Under vast domes of glass, this Minnesota wonderland houses koi pools, formal gardens, sculptures, a fern room, an orchid house, bonsai exhibits and more.  There's an acre under glass that's been growing since 1915.  On the National Register of Historic Places, there is no charge to visit this Victorian monument - hence the 'poor man's' moniker. You can also visit it  here online.
