MINI PENNY: Vegetation

Sunday, June 19, 2011


Today Geoff and I went to the Franklin Park Conservatory. I hadn't been there in about a year, so we went to check out the butterfly exhibit. We arrived just before one o'clock so that we could witness the 1pm release of new butterflies. It was pretty interesting.

I would suggest checking out FPC if you've never been there. They have some very interesting plants and the biggest koi fish I have ever seen! Right now they have a really nice butterfly exhibit. My only complaint is that I dislike all of the Dale Chihuly blown glass. I think it's tacky and ugly. But that's just me.

I have a photo of my grandfather carrying my 7-month-old father in front of the Franklin Park Conservatory palm house. The photo is from 1943. I really wanted to take one of those neat photos were you line up the old photo against the current landscape and snap it, but unfortunately there have been so many trees planted that you cannot see the Palm House from that far back. So instead I had Geoff take this photo of me standing in front of the doors and holding the photograph. I sent it to my dad for father's day!
