MSU Hidden Lake Gardens Arid Dome is a great place to go when it gets cold here in Michigan.

It's warm:)
This is Portulacaria afra or Elephant Bush from South Africa

Great photos, Frank. I was able to visit there on one of my trips to see my daughter and I remember the Arid Dome. I was impressed by all of Hidden Lakes Garden. We had a great day but for some reason we forgot to take many photos, except of Hosta Hill!

What a great looking portulaca, it looks really old with that large a trunk. Down here, they are called the money plant and supposedly will bring good fortune to a house. Most people have at least one around Whistling including me.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
