Glowing cape

At last week’s last Lusio light art fundraiser at Seattle’s Volunteer Park Conservatory, this person went all out with their glowy LED cape, perfect for the occasion.

Teensy orchids

I know I’ve been using such technical plant names, but I can never remember the real names. Anyway, this stalk that looks like fountain grass is really little bitty orchids! So saith the Volunteer Park Conservatory, and they should know.

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!

Fancy mum leaves

“Fancy” is not a very technical description, but I’ve never seen chrysanthemum leaves with a white border like this. Pretty showy!

Gray sky over the Conservatory

Rain was clearly on the way in this view of the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle from the back.

Almost looks like lightning, doesn’t it?

Star light art

This lovely neon star art was even prettier reflected in the glass panes within the Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle at the recent Lusio Lights event. Don’t you love the huge staghorn fern it’s nestled up against?

Venus fly trap light art

The Volunteer Park Conservatory in Seattle has been having some illumination art fundraisers. This is a lit-up carnivorous plant sculpture from last night’s Lusio Lights art event. You just don’t see something like this every day.

Large light art sculpture of a Venus fly trap. The light colors kept shifting.
