Still decked for the season, the conservatory awaits. Let's see what's waiting inside.
An explosion of Poinsettias and Hippeastrum (amaryllis)
Like many of the seasonal floral displays, the poinsettias are grown in metro parks greenhouses across town and brought in for the display
Nestled among some of the permanent residents of the conservatory, the blooms glow.
This is a great place to visit in the winter and while there are lots of special events and sometimes live music, I love going when the place is mostly empty and one can sit and enjoy the warmth and foliage.
The unlabeled agapetes is beginning to bloom again!
the patterns on the flowers are so interesting. One of my own is blooming in my greenhouse as well.
Surprise of surprises, there's snow in the tropics. How did that happen?
The large leaves of this philodendron are beautiful
but it was the pattern on its stems (trunks?) that really caught my eye.
See, orchids are easy to grow (in a perfectly temperature and humidity controlled environment.)
One never knows what might pop up.
We'll visit once again in February when the new display, "Crave: An Early Glimpse of Spring," goes in. If you're in the area, do drop by the conservatory. I keep forgetting to take pictures of the cute things in the gift shop. Oops.
Happy eleventh day of Christmas all!
