My last visit to the conservatory located in Columbus, Ohio was right before the world went into lock down so it was so nice to be able to go there again. I felt like I was visiting an old friend that I hadn’t seen in a long time and in actuality that is the truth. I’ve gone several times a year every year since moving to Ohio a decade ago. It’s always an extra joyous time to visit in December when they make their magic with plants and decorations along with the gingerbread houses which are on display now until the end of December.
The houses are grouped into adult, family and youth divisions; visitors vote for the grand prize winner. This impressive bit of construction is the adult division winner.
The holiday blooms display runs until January 10th with all of the seasonal decorations and the amazing displays of hundreds of beautiful and unique poinsettias including the traditional 10 foot poinsettia tree. Sorry that I do not have that image to share as it was often the prop for families taking photos and I didn’t want to disturb them. The conservatory displays are always so beautiful with such attention to detail. I wish my holiday decorating skills were even half as good!
They have on display some poinsettias in colors and shapes that I’ve not seen before to accompany the solid red ones we all are accustomed to.
A trip to the Holiday Blooms display at Franklin Park Conservatory is just the thing for a bit of beautiful, colorful cheer and tranquility; a seasonal delight.
