Krohn Conservatory Part 1

Okay, this is taking longer than I thought, so I’m going to post some of the pictures today and some another day.

Krohn Conservatory is in Eden Park in Cincinnati. So this one lady on the bus says, “Hmmm. A garden in Eden….” And this other lady says, off-hand, “Don’t eat the fruit.”

These pictures have gotten all mixed up somehow, but the first thing we saw when we went in was a bunch of umbrellas and parasols hanging upside down. It was very cheery, somehow. 🙂

There was a koi pond and, as is the case with any smallish public pond, pool, pit, basin or well in America, people had tossed pennies into it. I don’t know why people learn to play the violin when they could just put a bucket on the sidewalk and label it, “Drop a coin, make a wish” and retire to a villa on the Riviera.

Anyway, here are some of the pictures.

WRITING PROMPT: If wishing wells worked, what would you wish for (must be selfish)? How about your main character? Your villain?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

        We have annual orchid shows that are awesome. Haven’t been in years, of course, but they are worth seeing. Each display is a wonder, carefully crafted and arranged to dazzle. Indescribable!

          I’ll post the orchids from the Krohn another day, but they were definitely NOT arranged to impress. After the gorgeousness of the other rooms, the display was a little disappointing, but the blooms and foliage were not. 🙂
