You'll have to wait till tomorrow for the post I wanted to do today. I think I have to re-scan some old photos. Meanwhile... here are some fun pictures from the same location I plan to tell you more about.
I worked at Matthaei Botanical Garden in Ann Arbor in a number of different capacities from about 1994 to maybe 2001. Sometimes full time, sometimes part time. It's the best place I've ever worked. That's what I want to tell you about, but today you'll just get some nice pictures from my recent visit.
This is part of the perennial garden, which is less impressive than they would like it to be. The deer refuse to be deterred, so these are critter-proof plants only.
How about those allium!
Inside the conservatory are tropical, temperate and desert houses. This is Rangoon Creeper, in the tropical section.
Here's a general view in the desert house with a blooming Perfoliate Crassula.
You know I love succulents. Crinkle Leaf is the appropriate common name for this, scientific name Andromischus cristatus.
Moving outside, this is an information kiosk, but check out the roof!
And finally, for today, just a nice view of the barn from the prairie trail. I used to get to mow the trails- one of my favorite jobs there, although there was hardly a bad task (OK, maybe a couple).
Hopefully, I can find the other pictures I want to scan for another day.
In other news: I wrote Chapter 7 in The Bigg Boss, and then I worked at Shagway Arts Barn for part of the afternoon and the evening. Thus the late post.
