Retrospective: Conservatory

On the Sunday before going to Arizona, Evelyn and Dad took a little trip to the Como Conservatory.  Evelyn had a really good time – it was her first time seeing fresh green plants in a while.  For that matter, it was Dad’s, too.  There were lots of cool things to see – the fern garden, a huge coconut palm, lilies, and a fig tree that was pruned all the way back to naked!  But the coolest was the spice area, where there were bananas, cinnamon, an allspice tree, and even a pineapple!  Dad had seen pineapple plantations before, but not up close – and certainly not a baby pineapple growing inside!

Evelyn was less impressed.

She was pretty thrilled when she got to see the anaconda swimming in the tropical exhibit in the zoo, but there aren’t any pictures of that – you’ll have to trust me.

Next – more Arizona fun!
