Brrrrr! It’s -1oF this morning in Pittsburgh, too cold to enjoy the outdoors.
Last Tuesday the temperature was a balmy 33oF when I visited Phipps Conservatory’s Holiday Magic at dusk. The Winter Garden glowed.
As daylight faded a few white-throated sparrows made contact calls before they fell asleep. The garden is their winter home.
And then the garden was brighter than the sky.
Phipps Holiday Magic continues through Sunday 8 January 2023. By Wednesday 28 December Pittsburgh’s high will be 42oF! Click here for a timed ticket.
