If you’re looking for somewhere to go to escape the unexpected rain or drizzle that can be all too familiar in the Pacific Northwest, the Conservatory, at Volunteer Park in Seattle, is a perfect place to go. With a low admission cost of $4 a person, its greenhouse contains a few different sections for a bit of musing. And for those, like me, who haven’t been blessed with a green thumb, it offers inspiration to reconsider your failed attempts at keeping plants alive, and to perhaps try again. Although I am not a desert person, I did find the cactus and succulent room to be my favorite. My husband, who is originally from Tucson, Arizona, also felt quite at home in this room. 🙂 And after the rain stops, it’s nice to head outside and explore the rest of the park. Several tall trees are scattered throughout the park offering a peaceful atmosphere to take a long stroll.
