Krohn Conservatory Christmas Display


The Krohn Conservatory Christmas Display in Cincinnati, Ohio is simply beautiful!  As I watched small children running from display to display, I felt like one of them, excited every time I took a photograph.  I almost tripped a few of them as I was running from spot to spot!  Poinsettias were everywhere!

Here’s the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge that spans the Ohio River from Cincinnati to Covington, Kentucky.  Mr. Roebling also designed the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City!

The colorful and intoxicating display of flowers and plants was almost overwhelming!

The cute trains chugging along, high and low, brought back memories of a Christmas long ago…

Each building represents a piece of Cincinnati’s history.  These buildings are the Procter and Gamble headquarters, with the Christian Moerlein Lager House in the background.

I believe these buildings represent the oldest neighborhood in Cincinnati—Columbia Tusculum.

There is an annual event called “Balluminaria”, that thousands of people attend to watch as hot air balloons are filled next to a man-made lake, called Mirror Lake in Eden Park.  I’ve attended once and it was spectacular!

There’s even a waterfall…

All of the displays were made out of natural materials, such as tree bark, sticks, and moss.

In the main foyer, these hanging lanterns gave it a middle eastern flavor…

There’s a lot more to Cincinnati and I’m discovering it bit by bit and the Krohn Conservatory is one of its jewels!

  6. Stunning photos .. what a place to visit – if you don’t have the Christmas spirit before the visit .. you will get it for sure.
    We call that red flower – Christmas Start! I just love it, but never manage to get one to survive Christmas, trying every year.
