Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory in Photos

On Monday, I shared highlights and info from our trip to the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory in Fort Wayne. As typically happens to me whenever I'm in a beautiful place like this, I got a little photo happy. So here are a few more pictures from our time there.

I was particularly taken with the Flower Power exhibit (pictured above). I liked the balance between the 60s inspiration and Mother Nature's own rainbow of colors. It's only at the Conservatory temporarily, through November 13, when it will be replaced with a holiday exhibit. So get there while you can.

I just happened to catch my husband in a moment of peace and quiet in the Tropical Garden. A rare thing when traveling with a 2-year-old. But that's exactly why I enjoy visiting places like this, where everyone is free to wander and marvel at their surroundings.

And while most of the exhibit space is indoors, ensuring that all this gorgeousness can be enjoyed year-round, there is some outdoor garden space. They were setting up for a wedding while we were there. (If I were the bride's florist, I'd be awfully nervous that my bouquet just wouldn't measure up!)

This post is a part of Photo Friday at Delicious Baby. I'm also linking up to Friday Daydreaming at R We There Yet Mom?

Disclosure: My family's admission to the Botanical Conservatory was provided by Visit Fort Wayne. I was under no obligation to write about our time there, and all opinions are my own.
