The Conservatory

A few weeks ago, we visited the Conservatory of Flowers in San Francisco. They have an awesome plant collection and I needed some inspiration to lighten up this dreary weather!

The textures of the leaves were unbelievable!

My camera lens started to fog up (can't be good) when I was taking this shot, but it gave the photo a mystical look.

A teenie tiny orchid magnified!

The trunk of a tortoise plant.

The unfurling of a carnivorous plant.

These specimens are to gorgeous to be carnivorous!

The close-up of the leaf reminds me of a housing development from a plane. Wow, what a great exhibit.
