My husband and I got up early and went to Pittsburgh to enjoy the Phipps Conservatory and the National Aviary. It was so beautiful yesterday after about 10 AM. The rain cleared out and the sun felt warm It happened that the Aviary was free yesterday because of a festival going on in the park. Lucky us! I was just so impressed with both places. I really was impressed with the conservatory. The flowers and orchids were unbelievable! And...who would think lunch at their cafe was going to be such a pleasure? Delicious food.
One of my favorite parts of the day was the Butterfly Hatching Cage at the conservatory. There were 3 that I could see. You could sit there all day and watch the butterflies come out of their pupas. It was amazing. I'll post some daily pictures of the day at the aviary and conservatory this week as I get time. Click on the photo to enlarge.
