This is quite a cold week, so I decided to go indoors to check out the new poinsettia display at the Park Conservatory.

Temp -27°C feels like -40°C with the wind chill.

This one lone giraffe was standing in the corner all by himself. I think it was so he could get some sun.  The flowers on him are real.
