What do you do......

...... when it looks like this?

and you wish it would look
like this:

you go off to the conservatory...
to photograph flowers:

the desert:


while taking these magnolia photos
in the Himalaya Room
the misters came on 
giving it a beautiful haziness

While taking photos in the Palm Room
I heard a noise 
and looked up to see....

I will be linking up to Outdoor Wednesday

Out door Wednesday


  1. Hi Jo, It looks like the squirrel found a great place to hybernate! You have Beautiful Photos! Bella

  2. Wow, I love all the flowers! Great photos!

  3. So you are seeing the outdoors indoors. Well done.
    The government was going to close our conservatory due to lack of funds and the need for some repairs when there was a huge outcry from the public. Then they found out the stipulations of the conservatory being built included a caveat that the government couldn't close it as it was mostly donated in the beginning.

  4. Squirrel surprised me among all those beautiful flower images.
