in the greenhouse
One of the (many!) highlights of the Pennsylvania trip was a special tour of Henry Clay Frick's Clayton House in Pittsburgh, organized by the ever-creative author of Architect Design. And last week, with his usual flair, Stefan treated us all to a fantastic overview of the house and grounds. Building on that excellent foundation, I thought I would take you inside Clayton's wonderful little wedding cake of a greenhouse (oh, it is impossibly cute). Full of fragrant herbs, tomato plants, rows of fresh baby greens, orchids, and terracotta pots of cacti, it is a true working greenhouse...even supplying produce to the nearby Café at the Frick.
So, take a peek...and enjoy!
P.S. The entire Pennsylvania album is here (and growing day by day!).
