We finally did it. We got sick of winter and went back to the tropics.
No more blankets of white or spiny branches dripping melting ice. No. We have green!
And, yellow! Look at the size of those lemons!
My favorite was the cacao plant (above), where I drifted off into chocolatey dreams.
But, the tropics weren’t enough. So, we decided to take a jaunt to the desert as well.By now you can probably tell this was all indoors. You could feel and breathe the thicker and drier air in each location.If there is one thing I miss about living in Florida, it’s going to the State Fair every Valentine’s Day. Back home in Chicago, the wintery weather makes for difficult outdoor activities. So a greenhouse conservatory journey was a nice alternative.No making reservations, packing of bags, or hassle of the airport. Nope. Our wheels took us on a forty-five minute road trip, for a half-day’s getaway, to the tropics, and the desert southwest. This short trip even cost less than the State Fair, because it was free!
I hope you all had a nice Valentine’s Day. Spring is almost here! Right? Right??
