Well, Christmas is over. It’s been SO busy I haven’t had a chance to write a new post in a couple weeks and I apologize for that. We’re still alive and kicking over here.
Over the last few weeks we have had the privilege of visiting Cincinnati, Ohio. During an extended weekend, we found ourselves with plenty of time to visit some of the sights around town. Eden Park is located in the Mt. Adams and Walnut Hills neighborhoods in Central Cincinnati.
The 128 acre plot of land was purchased by the city in 1869. We did a little sight-seeing of the grounds themselves but our favorite stop was the Krohn Conservatory.
The conservatory was built in 1933 during the height of the Art Deco period. I’m obsessed with the Art Deco period! (Think the architecture of the Chrysler Building, the colorful artwork of Tamara de Lempicka, or the beautiful jewelry, or the Great Gatsby!)
While greenhouses existed on the grounds of Eden Park since the 1880’s it wasn’t until the aluminum and glass conservatory was built that the general public was allowed to visit. Today the conservatory houses 3,500 different plant species from all over the world. They also have special exhibits throughout the year. We visited during their annual “Poinsettia Express” exhibit.
Enjoy all the beautiful photographs I was able to collect while we visited!
