Regina Floral Conservatory

It’s about -25 today so it’s a great day to share some pics from the Glimpse of the Tropics display at the Regina Floral Conservatory.  It’s one of the hidden gems in Regina, and on Sunday afternoon it was full of people escaping another cold January day.  I highly encourage a visit if you’re experiencing the winter blahs – you’re welcome to bring in a coffee, take off your coat, sit on a bench, and forget for awhile that you’re on the prairies in January!

Regina Floral Conservatory

The best antidote for a cold winter’s day is a visit to the Regina Floral Conservatory.  Granted, Saturday was the first time I’ve ever been there, but for an hour it was easy to forget that it was the beginning of February and minus 20 outside! The air was warm and moist (great for prairie winter parched skin), and the bright colours are a feast for the eyes!

The Conservatory is maintained by volunteers, and there are different themes throughout the year.  The theme right now is A Glimpse of the Tropics.  It’s open every afternoon and there are lots of benches and seating areas to soak it all in.  Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.

I have a new phone so wanted to try out the camera, what a perfect place to take photos in the winter!
