garfield park conservatory

The Show Room is pretty empty, but I always find something interesting at the Garfield Park Conservatory.

Flower petals that look like a pinwheel.

Bromeliads in varying sizes and colors.

A bright pink tropical flower. So perfect.

The current main attraction is a 60-year-old agave plant whose flowering stalk measures more than 38 feet.

This agave blooms only once before dying. Bittersweet to see, but very special.
