Macro of two fern fronds

Pretty contrast in textures of two ferns. The one on the left is a sprengeri and the one on the right is maybe a kind of bird’s nest fern?

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!

Neon love

See previous post for another image from a recent light-art installation at Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle. This fundraiser was called Lusio III, and the art was incredible. This image is one of my top faves, EVER!

Wedding flowers

I was at the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle when a wedding was winding up. The florist did a fine, fine job!

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!
