The conservatory at Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay, New York, is lovely, with lots of benches so that you can sit for a while and take in the gorgeous tropical plantings. It would be a great place to chase away the blahs this winter. There's even a bubbling fountain tucked away in a shady corner.

MoonSoul writes: Can anyone please help me with the name of the pink flowering plant in the bottom left hand picture? I have one of those in my front yard, and don't know what it is. My husband calls it a firework plant due to the way the blossoms look. I would like to know the correct name for it.
