A tropical paradise

Winter has finally arrived in New York and the snow and cold temperatures have me dreaming of a warmer climate. Since I can’t take a winter long trip to a tropical climate, I can take a quick day trip to one though, the main greenhouse at Planting Fields Arboretum. The greenhouse features a variety of plants including palms, ferns, orchids, cacti, begonias and more. Plus the temperature is at least 75 degrees if not more, the perfect place to escape on a cold winter day.
