Sunken Garden-Statue

Yesterday I showed you the exterior of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory in Como Park. Today I have a photo taken in the Sunken Garden, one of the most delightful gardens in the building. Tomorrow I will bring you to an equally delightful part of the Conservatory, the Fern Room.

The Conservatory hosts more than 300 wedding ceremonies each year! Couples can choose to have their ceremony inside the Conservatory in either the Sunken Garden or North Garden. The two outdoor locations, the Japanese Garden and The Excedra, are available seasonally.

The Sunken Garden in the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory in Como Park presents a seasonal potpourri of fantastic floral shows, with five popular themes each year. Enjoy amazing azaleas and festive poinsettias in winter, multicolored tulips in spring, prized roses and geraniums in summer and cheery chrysanthemums in autumn.

    I am not up to normal yet, so am only trying to pop in here and there. As I get better I will try to get back on schedule.
