On Saturday May 1, as part of our day-before-our-anniversary celebration, Bob I and visited the Lincoln Park Conservatory and the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago, before taking in a play. Here is a selection of pictures from the Conservatory.
From the Palm House: Piper crocatum (or P. ornatum--not sure which) climbing a Pandanus veitchii
From the Palm House: Anthurium clarinervium
From the Fern Room
From the Orchid House: Orchids and Bromeliads just hanging around
From the Orchid House: Maxillaria tenuifolia
From the Show House: Hydrangea, part of a temperate garden display
Also from the Show House: You know I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to get a picture of an unusual Hedera helix variety. Love that yellow.
