People in the northwest love greenhouses. I see our greenhouses everywhere I go, and here in the northwest it is almost daily. When driving around on a dreary winter day it warms my heart to see one of our greenhouses all full of light and warmth. They are like little tropical islands in a sea of cold fog, but if you are not yet fortunate enough to have your own there are two conservatories here in the Seattle – Tacoma area that provide a tropical getaway for everyone.
The Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle is celebrating their 100 year anniversary and their holiday display should not be missed. The link below will take you to their website which has all the information you need to plan your visit.
The W. W. Seymour Conservatory in Tacoma creates an entire Victorian holiday experience every year complete with costumes, story time, and visits from Santa. Their website can be viewed by following the link below.
We are very fortunate to have two of the three remaining Victorian-era conservatories in the U.S. right in our backyard and the holidays truly are a magical time to pay them a visit.
