Hi there. I'm a little late for Cactus Monday this week. Chris and I were visiting family in Wisconsin for a few days. While we were exploring Milwaukee, we went inside Mitchell Park Conservatory, also known as "The Domes."
The three beehive-shaped glasshouses are The Arid Dome, The Tropical Dome and the Floral Show Dome. The Arid Dome features cacti from North and South America as well as Africa.
It was hot, bright and sunny inside the Desert Dome. Strolling along the paths felt similar to walking around at home in the Sonoran Desert. Perhaps all that was missing were cactus wren songs, buzzing cicadas and glimpses of lizards darting here and there.
I hope everyone is having a happy Cactus Week. We were without internet on our trip, so it'll probably take me a few days to catch up on visiting all your great blogs.
