Glass Waterlilies at Phipps Conservatory's Summer Show

Giant purple water lily sculpture at Phipps Conservatory this summer.
 Summer is always a hot time to visit a conservatory, but it can still be worth while. Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA helped make their summer show something special this summer by including lots of beautiful glass art. My favorites were the waterlilies in the East Room...

Pink perfection, yes? All except the very tiny size of those lily pads... hum...  But still lovely set in this jungle scene.
More on this visit to come!

See some actual waterlilies at Phipps here, or my kids soaking up the Phipps fun here last summer.
