(not so) Wordless Wednesday...

Nashvillians are lucky. Where does one go to beat the blahs of winter? Opryland of course. Yesterday, I played "hookey" and took a few hours off to walk through the 3 atriums - Cascades, Garden Conservatory and Delta. In all, there are about 9 wonderfully landscaped acres under glass. The lush greenery, beautiful flowers and the sounds of rushing water are enough to bring solace to anyone's soul.

Michael,

Looks like a neat place to get out of the weather....One question....Did it feel colder when you went outside due to the humidity inside the greenhouse?

That would work for me!  I'm not happy though that you sent this latest storm our way, without taking a couple inches to lessen the impact!  LOL

Gorgeous....we have a place in Milwaukee called the DOmes that is very similar...I havent been there in years, but it would be the ideal time to go now during winter and get away from the dull grays for a while!

That is a place I would enjoy visiting. I like to take photographs of flowers. Thanks for sharing.

On Sunday, Dolores and I visited the Brookside Gardens conservatory in Montgomery County, MD for the opening weekend of their spring flowers exhibit.

 The colors of winter in Maryland. Life is good!

After reading this post I can see why one would like to pay Opryland a visit.  Maybe that is where I need to go for a visit.
