Conservatory and Bruce Lee Memorial

On saturday I had the pleasure of reconnecting with an old friend from college that I hadn't seen in like, four years. Michael took my friend and I out to brunch at Tallulah's then we showed him the Japanese Gardens from my earlier post here: Japanese Garden Weekend. After Michael left to work and to cycle, I took my friend to Volunteer Park where we went to the conservatory. It was my first time there so I took a ton of photos!

It was pretty inspiring seeing all these different types of flora and fauna since I try my hardest to describe the fantastical flowers in M2.

After, we went to the cemetary next door so that I could show my friend Bruce Lee's grave. Surprisingly, there was a memorial for him and his son Brandon.

Though I don't consider myself a huge fan of Lee's, I found the memorial to be very touching and inspiring. It just goes to show the great impact a person can have, even after death.


  1. Wow! Look at all those beautiful and exotic flowers! They look so summery!

  2. such gorgeous flowers!!! RIP Bruce Lee. Always thought he was a hot one ;)
    Sounds like you and your friend had a great day! It's crazy how you can lose touch with those you went to school with, but it is always exciting when you reunite :)

    1. I completely agree. It is great to reunite!
