Como Zoo and Conservatory....

Conservatory...loved the architecture

Finally, some photos from my trip to visit my sister in Minnesota a couple weeks ago. We went to the Como Zoo and Conservatory located in St. Paul on saturday before the "big snow storm."  It's a great little zoo and the flowers in the Conservatory were absolutely beautiful. The Conservatory has 5 different flower displays during the year, we happen to hit upon the lily and orchid display. The price is right too, only a $2 per person donation is requested. After an hour or so in the Conservatory we hit the zoo, in which we found polar bears, a tiger and some sea lions. I would like to return to visit during the summer when they have some shows featuring the animals. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the pink flamingos--they don't like the Minnesota winter weather for some reason!! Enjoy....
