It was depressingly cold outside, when I saw the feature in Sunday’s newspaper on the start of Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens spring flower show.
Hubby was game, and suggested we go out to eat too. So after dragging ourselves to the gym, we came home, showered and headed downtown for a lovely brunch and afternoon among flowers.
As a holiday present to ourselves, we recently joined Phipps as members. As I discussed in Christmas Card from Old Quebec City, Mr. Buzz and I decided to give each other experiences rather than things this year.
Our first visit as members was just prior to New Years, taking you with us in the post, Magical Phipps Winter Flower & Light Show. In retrospect, it was a lot colder, actually frigid then.
Come with us on an impromptu, lovely way to ward off the winter blues. (more…)
The Gift of MembershipJoin me on a nighttime tour of Phipps winter flower and Christmas light show.
As I mentioned in the post, Christmas Card from Old Quebec City, my husband and I gave each other gifts of experiences this year. After spending a fabulous four-day weekend in Quebec prior, we agreed to a modest budget for presents on Christmas Day. One gift was a couples membership to Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, along with a timed ticket to the holiday lights show.
It was the perfect evening to go too, because it was the same day our sons flew home. We both needed something to shake off the blues. It was awfully cold that night, but that’s where my lovely new sweater wrap came in handy!
Join me now, in the warmth of your home, while we stroll through the conservatory and outdoor Christmas light show. (more…)
