astounding nature

Round two at the Irving Centre, we have come out of the forested perimeter back into the formal garden; really more of a lawn.

The little lily pond is an obvious focal point that we stop to appreciate.
Note the line of benches all around the grounds.
The pretty white water lilies
and pink
I was quite taken with the pink, for I usually only see white water lilies in the wild.
Royalty of the water plants
I love to wander through the greenhouses which are set up for study
yet accessible to the public
I was beginning to get that Costa Rica feeling again
especially with these small, joyful, almost comical lily-like flowers
and then there are the carnivores of the plant world
Fascinating up close
and closer still we see...lunch!
Today I close with a little texture/pattern project to share with you
pencil on buff, recycled paper
thank you for visiting!
let's keep our sights set on the miraculous
