Greenhouse Effect

Have you been saying "Yes?"

I have had the most interesting experiences lately, just by saying "Yes."

I was at lunch with a friend near the campus of Oakland University when she mentioned her latest acquisition - a big pot of geraniums! The university has an annual plant sale and she had fallen in love with a pre-planted pot for her front porch.

"It's in a historic greenhouse - wanna go?"

She had me at historic. We tromped through this amazing glass building (built in 1914!), peered in the "grotto" (damp, fern root-filled mini cave), looked at a 90-year-old cactus specimen and picked out two lavender & white striped verbenas. So pretty.

The best things happen when you say YES!
