Today’s blog is not about me. I dedicate today’s post to my good friend Lianne Schneider who at this moment is in ICU fighting for her life.

Though I was seated on a stone bench at the time, enjoying the very large tropical plants, it did not occur to me to look up. Right above us was a giant leaf with water droplets backlit by the sunlight coming in through the Conservatory’s greenhouse glass.
Fortunately for us, with our annual membership to the Conservatory, we will have time in the future to look up and see new sights such as this.
