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.

    Wonderful photos! Conservatories always make me feel as if I'm stepping into a dream... or getting a glimpse into someone else's mind. They are their own little worlds, encased by glass.

    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.
    Thanks, Judie

    To Moonsoul: I believe the pink flowering plant is Monarda (Bee Balm. The plant comes in may colors including red, various shades of pink, and violet. If you Google "Bee Balm" or Monarda, you should get tons of images....
