[Today a Month Ago] Never Enough Plants

December 20, 2014

Because two botanical gardens weren’t enough, my last full day in the US brought me back to Golden Gate Park, to the Conservatory of Flowers.

I’ve seen a couple of beautiful greenhouses by now, but I don’t think any of them had coloured glass.

The “potted plants” section was… pretty, but lacking any sort of botanical organisation. Kind of like my windowsills, really. Just with more flowers (I tend to stick to foliage plants.)

There were lots and lots of pitcher plants – far more than I had ever seen before.

I liked these planters with metal stilt roots.

And the artificial Victoria.

More pitcher plants… I have so many more pictures of pitcher plants. And so many more pictures of other plants. As with the two botanical gardens, I will have to revisit the conservatory in later posts.

    This was one of my favorite places in San Francisco! I felt so transported. There is a conservatory in Richmond that is a close second – that I didn’t know about before SF – and now I go there whenever the winter doldrums hit me.

      Conservatories are fantastic places when it’s grey and dreary outside.
