Moving on-

franklin conservatory 070 While in Columbus this last week, Willow and Aidan and I went to the Franklin Conservatory and enjoyed a stroll through the gardens.

It was really beautiful- the gardens are FULL of orchids- there were orchids everywhere!

And Chihuly art festooned all over the gardens!  Flowering from the greenspaces,

Overhead in cave-like spaces,

In boats, and floating like big easter eggs in the greenery-

And then there was a lot of child interactive fun-franklin conservatory 051 franklin conservatory 062 -AND-

The train village set up in the entrance-

where we spent a lot of time looking and ooh-ing and ah-ing as the trains went toot-tooting by! 

We spent the entire morning enjoying the gardens and art- and Aidan  played and   looked at the ponds and trees and structures and we ALMOST forgot that Winter was still holding a firm grip outside.
