Two highlights this week. First, our visit to Terrorium, a plant + taxidermy shop in Denver that boasted some weirdly divine offerings. An all-seeing unicorn? Neon fish bones? We asked about classes here. Oh yes, and Wilder bought a resurrection fern that amuses us each day with its growing + shrinking – those things are cool.
Second, our trip to Miller Farm doesn’t have many photos because we were all dying of heatstroke. Really. It ended up being 103º while we were out picking veg in the fields on a hayride with no cover. But because we went so much earlier in the season than our usual jaunts, we got entirely different produce! The kids are thrilled with their watermelons (red + orange!), cantalopes, cucumbers + myriad peppers. The upcoming week’s menu should be a cinch.
