Plants at the Botanical Building, Balboa Park Part 2.

Hello again,

The Botanical building regularly changes their displays.  On this visit, there was a display of various orchids.  Since I don’t know the names of them, I’ll just show you the photos.  I love that these orchids are delicate and whimsical  in color and shape.  If you are in San Diego, come check out Balboa Park. There is so much to see and do. You can click on any photo to see it more closely.




Hope you have enjoyed these and my walk through the Botanical Building at Balboa Park.

Beautiful Plants at the Botanical Building, Balboa Park.

Hello all!

Last week I went to Balboa Park in San Diego, CA. I hadn’t been there in awhile and wanted to see what was blooming.  I found so much beauty in the Botanical Building.  I enjoy walking around and looking at the lovely architecture but often what grabs my eye is the plant life.

I’m dividing my post into two posts. This first one includes pictures of 5 beautiful plants and their neighbors. As usual, I don’t know what their names are but I love the textures, shapes, and colors.

This one had these large green leaves, that almost look like the lily pads you see in ponds. And then, it had this tiny delicate blossoms.

I love the design on these leaves and how one side is various greens and the back side is that deep wine color.
