I meant to make another trip in summer to the outdoor lily pond at the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden but never got a chance. This outdoor pond is one of the most photogenic places in Phipps or in Schenley Park. This pond is located in Schenley Park outside of the greenhouse. No admission is needed.
In summer when blue damselflies are active and mating, you can easily spot them at the lily pond.
When it’s during the right time of the day, reflection of blue sky and clouds is pretty. I was there at 2 p.m. in a muggy summer day in July under burning sun. Definitely not a good time. Going back to this pond is on my to-do list for the fall and next summer for the water lilies.
