Poinsettia Show

I combined a walk outside with a search for color this afternoon. I parked by the lake and walked over to the Como Conservatory to see if there was a flower show to be seen. It was a cold walk, but once inside the Conservatory it got much warmer and indeed steamy. The Sunken Garden is the home of the holiday poinsettia show. I don't know how much longer it's running, but it was nice to see some brilliant reds.

Another view featuring the sculpture in the pool, daintily dipping her toe into the water. It's winter outside, but a pleasant summer day inside the sunken garden.

January is off to a coolish start, but a warm-up is coming later in the week. It's been a wimpy winter so far in the north country.
