Bandana of the Everglades

Rogue cannas flower floating in the lily pond at Como Zoo. In other news, a botanist at Kew Gardens has just saved the world's smallest waterlily from extinction. Way to go, Carlos!

Red Things That Are Not Usually Red

I was waiting around at the hospital for my mom, who was having wrist surgery, and got to wondering - what is all of this red about? I (of course) wanted to try everything out and see what happens. I'm sure there's a logical explanation for all the redness, but I don't want to know what it is.

Unter den Linden

Die Linden blühen! The linden trees are blooming, which always reminds me of Berlin.
