Garfield Park Conservatory

This a another entry  in the “Fun things to do in Indy”!! About two Saturdays ago a few women from church decided to go to the Garfield Park Conservatory for the afternoon. Not one of us had been before and it was a pleasant surprise. The cost was $1.00 to walk through the greenhouse and the outdoor Sunken Garden area is free. It was a beautiful day and we had a nice time just looking at God’s handiwork.

Image This is “Black Olive” tree. I love olives but, unfortunately I’m allergic to them and they give me a migraine if I eat them. :(( I had no idea they grew on little trees, I thought they grew on vines.

Image This is a “Pitcher Plant”…if you w’ere a little bug you’d want to avoid this, because they’re carnivorous. ewe…but very pretty!!!

Image My favorite!!! A “Coffee bean” tree. Bring on the Java!!!

Image There were so many colorful plants, but if I had to pick a favorite this would be it. I love pink and purple anything.

Image They had a nice little waterfall in the back with a small pond full of Koi.

Beautiful outdoor water fountains This is the beautiful view you see in the back of the conservatory. They have nice benches to sit and just enjoy the beauty. It was so peaceful.

So, if you’re around the South side of Indianapolis stop by the park for a bit.~Bam
