As winter drags on and the herbs on your kitchen's window ledge wither under the cold, gray skies, there's no better way to lift the mood than a trip to a flower garden. The Sunken Gardens at Como Zoo will refresh and restore your senses. Suddenly, you'll believe that spring isn't just a figment of your imagination—it really will come again. The master floral designers at Como bombard the place with breathtaking combinations of pink, yellow, red, and purple flowers—azaleas, cyclamen, veltheimia, and amaryillis. If a winter trip to the Caribbean isn't on the agenda, the conservatory's tropical room is the next best thing—the rich smell of dirt and leafy palms and the chirping sounds of rainforest birds positively transport you to another world.
