A horticulutral day
Can you guess what this is? Yesterday, my friend
Samos took me to the Volunteer Park Conservatory. Unfortunately, we got there just as it was about to close, so we had time to look at the cacti and not much else. In the center of the fern and orchid room, is a large glass ball (shades of the Wizard of Oz) on a pedestal. Actually it is so shiny that it works as a mirror. This is a picture of the ball nestled among the leaves, and if you look closely, instead of Dorothy and Toto, you can see Samos and I admiring ourselves in the reflection.
