…upon entering the Garfield Park Conservatory:
About 13 and a half months ago, the Fern Room did not look quite as lush. A tremendous hailstorm smashed most of the glass in the entire Conservatory, damaging many plants. In these and the images I have recently posted, some of the plant damage has been retouched, to give you a more beautiful view.
If you have an interest, you can see a video slide show of the damaged glass at http://www.garfield-conservatory.org/. You may even choose to donate to the fundraising effort, “One Pane at a Time”.
While strolling, you’ll find yourself in a more arid room containing succulents and cacti, like these:
Prickly Pear Cacti
I have many more images to present and hope you, the viewer, enjoy them as much as I do!
