Morning cocktails in the Orangerie

Orangaries: Glassed rooms originally used by swells in Europe to cultivate citrusin the age when large panes of glass first became available, would make the perfect addition to any structure, in my estimation. Even a tree house. What a perfect place to mix a mimosa and read the New York Times on a Sunday morning or to host a lovely winter brunch. Weather and seasons will matter only to the view. You can commune with the garden regardless of nature when it is at its most fierce.


Parish Conservatories.
