Saturday Photo: Green Houses on Cold Days

This is a picture of the Palm House at the Royal Gardens at Kew.  It is a very lovely place, and the inspiration of glass houses all over the world.

Saturday Jeanne and I spent a delightful hour or two in one of the local examples, the green house next to Westmount Library.  It is place where Elin, Lukas and I went frequently when they were little, combining getting books with  looking at the gold fish in the ponds inside conservatory and savouring the lovely smells.

I'm delighted to report that Jeanne enjoyed it just as much as her mother and uncle did.  Now I'm looking forward to taking her and her cousin Thomas there next winter.
