My Tuesday blog posts usually feature restaurants, but I didn’t have the opportunity to try a new one this week. I did visit the Como Park Conservatory, however, and was pleasantly surprised that it coincided with the St. Paul Winter Carnival’s Orchid Show.
The Como Park Conservatory is the perfect place to visit on a blustery January day, it feels like a tropical paradise.
The orchid varieties were astounding, but I found I was most drawn to the ones with the curly petals.
I don’t know much about orchids, but I know that this isn’t one. Isn’t it pretty though?
The Winter Carnival Orchid Show was only held for two days, but there are plenty of other flowers to see at the Conservatory throughout the year. Visit their website for special events information.
