Just about the time that I am missing our tropical days in Thailand, Franklin Park Conservatory reveals its new exhibit of orchids from different tropical places in the world. I can't be more thankful.
We went there at 11am today, just in time for the Hula Dancing performance in the Palm Room. The Hawaiian music, together with the genteel, beautiful Polynesian dance, put the winter blues away (almost completely!).
Afterwards, the kids had fun with the craft activities offered in the family fun room in the lower level. There are many activities planned around this wonderful exhibition throughout the month and beyond. With our membership, we are free to go as often as we wish... lucky for us!
Here is more information about the exhibition. Columbus is lucky to have such a wonderful conservatory, especially for a mid-winter escape like this one.
