the bloedel floral conservatory

While taking myself on a walking tour of Queen Elizabeth Park last week, I stopped in at the Bloedel Conservatory just to sneak in a little more springy green before heading home. It's hard to resist the Bloedel when it's only $5.60 to wander around for as long as you like. They change the flowering plants around every season, so there's always something new to look at, but mostly I love their tropicals, with the dramatic foliage and shadows, and the cacti and staghorn ferns and all things lovely, not to mention their resident birds.
