talk about it more

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Botanical beauty

Our family went to the Botanical Conservatory this morning. I had thought we could enjoy the colors of the Fall Mum showcase, but that's already been ripped out to prepare for Christmas, as it turns out. That whole room looked like dirt, mostly. Surprisingly enough, though, seeing a room that is usually alive with scent, color, and texture flattened to rich black dirt was interesting in its own way.

We also walked through the rainforest and desert areas, marveling at the exotic treasures held in each. We read plaques beneath specimens, scrutinized flowing waterfalls and pools with fish, and played eco-games in the children's area. It was a great way to spend a morning. Now, as the days grow more crisp and chilly, I'm even more glad we have a pass to enjoy our Conservatory year-round since the zoo is closed for the season. What a way to grow!
