I know I said "mostly pictures" in my post and so it will be. But I didn't take any photos of the exhibits in the museum which included a wonderful exhibit of their Daywood Collection which was a gift of Ruth Dayton Woods.
There was also a quilt exhibit but I have to admit I didn't really like very many of them...
So, on our way out, we decided to visit the conservatory and, as always, it is in glowing health! I actually got some photos there that I'm happy with. :)
The conservatory has always has plenty of orchid plants but today, they were everywhere - on the floors around the perimeter, hanging here and there, tucked in among other plants, etc. Turns out the man who is the master behind the conservatory came in while we were there and I mentioned how many more there were than the last time I visited. He explained that they had had to close their greenhouses for repairs and all the orchids had to be moved to the conservatory. I didn't even know they had greenhouses. Anyway, not to many were in bloom, but this one sure was and it is a beauty.
And that's all from the museum. Driving back in to town, we did a detour to take in the new construction and this next picture is for January's benefit (and mine - I figure it will entice her for a visit some time after it's completed).
"The bones of the old MacIntosh's Pub in Huntington are expanding and will soon be enveloped with the Bahn Hos, named for a German railway.
The German-American gastro pub will feature home made pretzels, real schnitzel and a Biergarten complete with a wide variety of your favorite legal beverages.
They're working toward a September opening, because Oktoberfest actually begins in September."
So, everyone come visit Huntington in October and join in the Oktoberfest festivities!
And, finally, it's been a long time since I've posted one of my never-successful sky pictures. This one doesn't do justice to what I was seeing either but that's the way it goes.
