Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory & Botanical Gardens
For years I have visited the Maryland Zoo in Druid Hill Park and upon entering the park turned left to the zoo while seeing this amazing structure on the right. Though well-kept, it always looked unoccupied and so I didn't give it much attention. What a wonderful thing to discover that it's a conservatory and botanical gardens.
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
