Behind the Conservatory

I do post a lot of photos about Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, but here is a view that few are lucky enough to see. This glass structure is one of the support production greenhouses, seen on a sunny, early-fall afternoon last week. Volunteering has its perks!

Illuminated quilt art

These pieced fabric panels (not really quilts), lit from behind, glowed so beautifully at the recent Lusio Lights event at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory.

Great blue heron

While at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Seattle the other day, we saw a great blue heron from pretty close by, looking for lunch. A tough job.

McCaw Hall wall

These metallic and gleaming color fields are so very beautiful to me. And padded! We went to see the ballet and this was a real bonus.

Illuminated cactus

My favorite haunt in Seattle, the Volunteer Park Conservatory, has been having light-art events. I love them. Here are some cactus plants with paper flowers added, all illuminated with black light.
