miniature and full size

at krohn conservatory, they have miniature cincinnati landmarks.  this is the john a roebling suspension bridge, by the builder of the brooklyn bridge, about whom this book was written.  it connects northern kentucky to ohio.

in the miniature version, people take the place of the ohio river.
here is ault park, a delightful place.
the central pavilion provides beautiful views from above,

and ground level.
here's krohn conservatory itself.  go inside and see it, and then
step outside
for a different view.
here's two i need to visit.  the taft museum of art and
the cincinnati museum center.  we were at the museum center friday for a field trip, but i was busy.  

architectural beauty, small and large.

joy to you!


  1. You are one busy lady Noreen! Joy to you too!

  2. The children would have loved seeing their city landmarks in miniature..great field trip for them xx

  3. You're so smart to show the real version and the miniature version. What a great exhibit. All the wonderful details in miniature replicas always fascinates me. Labor of love, for sure.

  4. Great pictures! There's something I just love about visiting a botanic garden or conservatory around holiday time. Longwood Gardens in PA is my garden of choice.

  5. Oh my gosh! I LOVE this! Your post is spectacular, just wonderful, and as a child and an adult, I would have been and would be totally absorbed. Brilliant on the part of the conservatory and brilliant on your part too!

  6. what a great field trip. i absolutely love seeing both the minatures and the real life... so brilliant x
