We live just a short walk away from a fabulous park designed by Frederick Law Olmstead. It's beautiful during every season, but one of my favorite spots during the winter is the Lamberton Conservatory. When I just can't take any more snow and cold weather, a walk throught the conservatory cures the winter blues. Here are some photos from this week's visit. I neglected to write down the names of all the flowers so a couple are unknown to me.
This looks like a variation of a shamrock plant, but I can't be sure of it.
There are lots of orchids, but these were the most beautiful.
This little turtle was poking his head out as the koi swam about in one of the pools.
The hibiscus are always a favorite of mine.
But this one is my pick for 52/50 this week. I've taken other photos much like the ones above, but this back of the hibiscus is a different perspective.
