This is the statue Play Days by Harriet W. Frishmuth in the sunken garden at the Como Conservatory.

The pond in the North Garden is one of the most peaceful places in the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at Como Park. I think the statue is of Francis of Assisi, but I’m not sure. If you know, please comment.
The North Garden at the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory is a “living grocery, pharmacy and building supply store.” It has papaya, pomegranate, fig, mahogany and chocolate as well as a really nice little pond with statues and is stocked with poi.
I really enjoy the Como Conservatory in the winter, it’s strangely pleasant to be uncomfortably warm, surrounded by high humidity.
I went to the Como Conservatory to ‘get a little green’ and found that the Sunken Garden is closed for planting. If you ever wondered what it looks like without all the beautiful flowers, well, here you go. You can see the garden with flowers on my buddy Dusty’s site. Fear not, I found plenty to photograph in the rest of the conservatory. Tune in over the coming days to see…
