I love the design of the Climatron. It's so wonderful to walk through a conservatory in the winter. Your photos have reminded me I'm overdue to a visit @ Longwood Gardens.

The Climatron is a sure cure for the winter blues.

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cackle maniacally and people back away from you slowly.
