It is summer. And while I watch my garden mature in the July heat, there are things about summers in Baltimore that make me giddy. The Conservatory is one of those. I enjoy Baltimore Pride in the park and walks through the orchid room and the dangerous beauty of the succulents (cacti).  But more than anything, I love the greenhouse. I enjoy the panes of glass and the sloped walls. It is why I adore skylights in homes.
