Conservatory of Flowers – My tropical paradise

I had visited the grounds surrounding The Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park many times before venturing inside. When you first approach the building, you too will be captivated by the expansive, glistening white Victorian architecture and the incredible lawns and flowers that surround it.

But make sure to venture inside and be prepared to feel like you’ve ventured into an entirely different climate. Once I did, I discovered what I call my Tropical Paradise!

The Conservatory of Flowers is peaceful. It’s relaxing. It’s good for your skin – seriously! There is a moistness to the air in each of the rooms and some feel as though you’ve traveled to a tropical, warm and humid country. When I leave The Conservatory of Flowers, I feel like I’ve been to the spa!

Each room at The Conservatory of Flowers contains an incredible variety of plants from all over the world. Horticulturists, botany students and plant enthusiasts visit from everywhere. Gorgeous water features reflect the light streaming in through the glass-paneled walls and roof.

For me, time spent at The Conservatory of Flowers is time to decompress, time to put technology aside (except for taking a few photos on my iPhone) and time to just be present.
