It's late April and we're in the middle of a winter storm warning. I have a twelve-foot pile of snow in front of my house. I had to run my car for twenty minutes this morning in order to be able to chip the ice off. So today, we went to the conservatory...where it was warm. We saw beautiful flowers, mingled with koi fish, and breathed in the sweet and spicy scent of plants whose names we couldn't pronounce.
Here are some pictures from our fun (and warm!) afternoon.
(We also saw a twenty-foot-long anaconda squeezing/drowning a frozen guinea pig. It doesn't really fit the mood of this post, but it was actually really amazing, so I had to share.)
