jerilile The Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory (commonly and locally known as the Belle Isle Conservatory) is a greenhouse and a botanical garden located on Belle Isle, a 982-acre island park nestled in the Detroit River between Detroit and the Canada–United States border. The park itself consists of 13 acres of preserved land for the conservatory and its botanical garden.

The conservatory is named for Anna Scripps Whitcomb, who left her grand collection of 600 orchids to Detroit, and made several generous donations afterwards. The building of the Belle Isle Conservatory itself possesses an imposing domed center reaching 85 feet in height, which houses the exotic palm trees and plant life from South America to the jungles of Southeast Asia. The conservatory is opened to the public free of charge, and operates from Wednesday through Sunday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. .

jerilile I'm sure people walking through Campus Martius Park don't realize they are even walking over this. It was so great walking downtown Detroit and seeing this.
This marker is located in the center of Campus Martius park at the intersection of Woodward Ave. and Monroe St.

After the fire of 1805, Judge Augustus B. Woodward was appointed to lay out a new plan for the streets, squares and lots of Detroit. It is from here at Judge Woodward's survey point in the center of Campus Martius that the city of Detroit's street system originated. This spot is Detroit's point of origin.

jerilile "A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor — such is my idea of happiness." ~Leo Tolstoy

jerilile The dragonfly exhibits iridescence both on its wings as well as on its body. Iridescence is the property of an object to show itself in different colors depending on the angle and polarization of light falling on it.
This property is seen and believed as the end of one’s self created illusions and a clear vision into the realities of life. The magical property of iridescence is also associated with the discovery of one’s own abilities by unmasking the real self and removing the doubts one casts on his/her own sense of identity. This again indirectly means self discovery and removal of inhibitions. .
