Field Trip: Haupt Conservatory at NYBG

The weather has been quite frigid here in NYC (14'F on Tuesday morning!), so a trip to the warmer climes of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at the NYBG was in order.  The tropicals were amazing and all I needed was a coconut with a straw in it to have made the visit perfect.


  1. There are some very cool and unusual plants there. What a great place to visit.
    Cher Sunray Gardens

  2. Greenhouses and conservatories are like life preservers to me in the bleak winter months. Fortunately it has generally been warm enought here that I don't the witner blues, yet.

  3. What a fabulous spot to warm up...up here in the nether reaches of the state we have had little snow...about 8 inches last week and now it is warming to a balmy 40 with rain...

  4. Oh, what a lovely place to visit. Here in nothern Sweden it´s a freezing cold vinter this time of year.
    You asked me about roses. Yes, we have some roses planted in pots, and some others, like wild growing, in our garden.
    The roses who grow in the garden and survive the climate is much more easy to handle.

  5. A good place to go when it is cold.
