So, its cold outside! And if you are like me, you don't want to sit inside all winter just because it is cold. Come out to visit us and take a walk - it is very peaceful here in the winter - and not cold in all parts of the garden. The fernery here at Morris Arboretum provides a nice place to stop and warm up between Out on a Limb and the Holiday Garden Railway. I think that the fernery is a really neat little space to see some different plants, look for the dinosaur, watch the fish and warm up a bit.
The Dorrance H. Hamilton Fernery is the only remaining freestanding Victorian fernery in North America. The Fernery documents a time when Victorians were consumed with ferns and glasshouses. It was designed by the original owner and namesake of the Arboretum, John Morris.
