Wintergreen

We stumbled upon a local greenhouse last Saturday. It turned out to be one of those happy accidents that occur while getting lost in a new city. The Little had never seen green stuff before, since the ground has been snow-covered since about the time he was born in November up until now. Notice how while Jerry and I are looking at the camera, Lo is just staring at...





Plants! It felt great to have some tropics in the middle of an actual blizzard right outside the glass windows.
Orange trees heavy with fruit.

The object of this stare-down is a fishtank. There were a lot of fish in it, just none visible from this angle.



Jerry loved, loved, loved the desert portion. It seems particularly exotic to him (whereas I grew up in a desert and was all set to zip through this section).



Once again, that Little was more concerned with staring at flowers and such rather than the camera, but here is another family shot from our fun outing.

Fun! I'm sure you will be visiting that often, if only to escape and forget about the cold snow outside!

The orange trees are what are exotic to me, and getting to look at baby Little!

Fun I love family outings. I call them "family dates". What a great place to go!

I love how babies are fascinated by EVERYTHING...it give life a fresh perspective. Lovely pix
