This is a vanilla plant…the sign saying not to touch it is hidden under the plant in a cove, so you don’t see it until you’ve touched the plant…The Garfield Conservatory in Chicago…2 pictures

Five pictures of cacti from the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago…

Ferns…The Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago 4 pictures

The ferns are very happy.  People are drenched.  This is the room where the fairies live…in the nooks and crevices.  You can see their patios and their part places.  They only come out at night because that’s when the humans are gone and they have the whole place to themselves.  The picture below shows where some of them play.  We might bring tiny toys for them next time we stop by.  


Garfield Park Conservatory…Chicago 4 pictures

I went to the Conservatory with my cousin and three other women yesterday.  Don’t want to back for a long time.  It’s a small Conservatory and nothing really changes.  Beautiful but I know it by heart.  The cactus were blooming, so I took pictures for you because they look so sweet with their tiny flowers.  I like the fern room, even though it’s a thousand degrees and the humidity is insane.  The ferns are happy, even if the people are melting and that’s all that matters. .
