A big WOW!! That's fantastic. I assume the goldfinch is real? :-)

The Goldfinch and several other birds were having a time in the outdoor Japanese Garden area, and weren't going to let a camera bug ruin their fun.

Beautiful place and beautiful glass, too. I love Frabel's work; the figures dancing on the balls in the water are amazing! His trees are wonderful too. I recognize a couple Chihuly pieces; he's one of my favorite artists.

The Phipps Conservatory was one of my favorites when I was growing up in Pittsburgh. It's great to see it again- it's the perfect setting for those amazing glass pieces. Thanks for providing the photos.
