Here are some pictures that I took last weekend when I was down in the cities at the Como Zoo and Marjorie McNeely Conservatory. Apparently I was either a little too distracted in my excitement, or just a little loopy from the heat, but I forgot to look at all the little signs to actually find out what kind of plants these were. I know some of them are orchids, and I know the fourth one is a Lotus flower, but that’s about it.
This was coming from the top of a large tree, and I had to stand on a bench to get this shot. Very cool flower.
A Lotus flower! I’ve always wanted to see one of these, I love them!
There they are, folks! Please let me know if you have any info about these plants, or if you have a guess as to what they might be! Thanks, and happy gardening!
