It's a Bromeliad Festival!
Last weekend, I spent the morning at our local university's Botanical Festival. I'm happy to report that bromeliads (including Tillies!), smelly plants, succulents, and gorgeous tropical flowers were abundant and reasonably priced. I was admirably restrained; I bought a patchouli plant, some rue, three Tillies, and a tree frog (that hitched a ride on the patchouli- I set him free when I discovered him). I had fun taking pictures of the gorgeous blooming bromeliads. Here's a Guzmania:
It was hard not to return home with a carful of new plants, and I'm patting myself on the back for my restraint!
