Canna leaves

At my favorite Seattle haunt, the Volunteer Park Conservatory, I got to peek into one of the lower support greenhouses. One of the perks of volunteering!

Wedding flowers

So many kinds of lovely flowers in this wedding arrangement.

Hydrangea macro

Hydrangeas are some of the most beautiful flowers in close ups. I see that I have already done two posts with the title Hydrangea Macro! (Search for hydrangea in the search bar on the right.) These multi-hued ones were blooming at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory’s Spring and Easter display, going on right now. Go see them!
