I was hoping to see the lotus in bloom and it might be towards the end of the month, although I’m glad there were some water lilies in bloom.
We got there around 9:15 am and the sun was high by then. We definitely have to get there earlier next time.
I used my telephoto lens to take these photos.
It’s not a very sharp image of the moth but I like the picture.
The entrance to the glass–roofed Conservatory.
This is a neat idea, recycled old suitcase as flower pot.
I was glad to see the cactus in bloom.
The flower looks so delicate in comparison to all the needles sticking everywhere.
I’m glad to have seen these blooms also.
A very strange looking orchid.
These blooms look beautiful in a strange way.
They do take a character of their own.
This is the first time I’ve noticed the blooms, they look like little hungry baby birds.
This must be a pineapple, it’s very tiny.
