Commutator Breakdown, always the saaaaame

Wait, you mean this place wasn’t the inspiration for one of Led Zeppelin’s early hits? I stand corrected: starting in 1884, this used to be the Commutator Brass Foundry Company, but was converted some years ago to offices and small businesses.

Tropical encounter

Not so much from the outside, as the morning was crazy windy and on the chillier side of the thermometer, but inside the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory, it’s always summer as you stroll through a half acre of sundry vegetation.


Found this in Como Park one morning after a rain the previous night. I had no idea what kind of plant it was, but lucky for me, Mrs. Twin Cities Seen is down with the identifying of the vegetation, and said, "That's a sedum, you knucklehead".
