I love that first step inside the conservatory from the parking lot, especially on a grey winter day: the wet, earthy smell, the warmth, the humidity, and all the beautiful greenness! My camera lens steamed up as soon as we stepped inside.
An unexpected connection back to the movie. The 2nd paragraph of the sign says, "Beginning in AD 1492, Native American populations were reduced by warfare, disease, and starvation as invaders from overseas displaced the Indians from their ancestral lands."
In case you can't read that flag, that is Mount "Jason Voorhees" that my young horror movie fan made.

Reading about the chocolate tree & the "food of the gods" and thinking about plans for the next movie we want to see about some other gods: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
