PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Phipps Conservatory is always a “Winter Wonderland” this time of year.
And this year, they have the perfect song to go with it.READ MORE: Pittsburgh Weather: Monday Warm-Up Ahead Of Dropping Temperatures
Exhibit Coordinator Jordyn Melino and her staff matched flower displays with lines from the popular song written by Dick Smith of Honesdale, Pennsylvania, back in 1934.
“We have our ‘Parson Brown’ in the middle here, with an entire wedding procession of snowmen,” Jordyn says of one exhibit.
As the song goes, “He’ll say: are you married? We’ll say, no man, / But you can do the job when you’re in town.”READ MORE: Year Up Program Offering Pittsburgh Housing Authority Residents Skills Training, Internships
There are two dozen varieties of poinsettias, in kaleidoscopic splashes of red and yellow, and sometimes, both.
The Winter Flower Show has been extended into the Discovery Garden, where more than 65,000 LED lights draw the customary plaudits. Cones of light, seven feet tall, are also a crowd pleaser.
But for most of the exhibit, visitors will be “walking in a winter wonderland.”
