As I was driving and Pat was navigating through the maze of bridges and streets in Pittsburgh, we saw a sign that told me we were living right. The Pittsburgh Home and Garden Show was at the convention center. It was a block away from the hotel. That answered the question about what we were going to do on Saturday. The show is a great reason to visit Pittsburgh, and as I am a garden show addict, I don’t need much of a push to add it on next year’s list.
We made sure to visit the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden. We were in luck. There was something like a bazillion orchids in bloom. Add a train garden and water features and it was sensory overload.
Their Chihuly is very cool.
