Brrrrr! It’s -1oF this morning in Pittsburgh, too cold to enjoy the outdoors.

Last Tuesday the temperature was a balmy 33oF when I visited Phipps Conservatory’s Holiday Magic at dusk. The Winter Garden glowed.

As daylight faded a few white-throated sparrows made contact calls before they fell asleep. The garden is their winter home.

And then the garden was brighter than the sky.
