Another Day at the Garden

Today has an expected high of 55. A week ago we had a day where we didn't reach 15 degrees. What a world of difference 40 degrees makes! With the beautiful warm weather, I met Janette and Miss A at the Garden. It was still chilly when we started, but by the time we finished it was a beautiful, sunshine filled day. You can tell how cold it has been by the large chunks of ice in the fountains.

We also spent some time in the Climatron, the geodesic dome housing the tropical plants. I can't get any pictures in there because the lens of the camera fogs over. The temperate greenhouse has a great Spanish Fountain that Miss A is a big fan of. It also houses several oleander plants, which are extremely toxic.

Jimmy sometimes is insistent that we need to visit the rain forest. The Climatron fits the bill. Didn't know about the toxic plants. I'll make sure he refrains from licking any next time we visit.
