A Little Inspiration










We are so fortunate to have the Garfield Park Conservatory close to home. I grew up in the Garfield Park area, and visiting the conservatory is like taking a stroll down memory lane. Me, Steve and Brittney met Karen there this morning to take a few family photos.

The conservatory is beautiful, and a must see if you are in the area. One area is decked out for Christmas, but the inner room with the waterfalls is as always....full of exotic plants in full bloom! Here are a few photos that I snapped. I hope they bring you some inspiration, and a little warmth on this cold and wintery day!

Steve and I are working on enclosing my torch station to ensure that all fumes are captured by the new ventilation system. Hopefully, I will have some new beadie pictures soon.

Take care all, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, and as always, thanks for looking!
