Rebecca and I took an urban hike yesterday – to lunch in the University district via the Volunteer Park conservatory. I love the conservatory and remember my grandfather taking me there and showing me the shy mimosa. The mimosa is still there, as are these cactus and several other vulgar looking plants which particularly took Rebecca’s eye. I am not sure about the function of this silver ball, but it is fun to look at your reflection in it. You can see Rebecca and me, and if you look here, you can see Samos. Also, notice the delightfully gray sky - a relief after a few unpleasantly hot days.
