12/18/12 - Christmas at the Volunteer Park Conservatory

One of our favorite places in Seattle is the Conservatory at Volunteer Park. It takes a bit of climbing up Capital HIll to get there, but the display there is always amazing. It's even more amazing around Christmas.

There are always orchids at the conservatory

But, around Christmas, they do the place up proud.

More Christmas flora, decora, and wonderful, steamy greenhouse warmth

We dropped by to visit the cactus.

There is always something even more amazing at the conservatory, like these flowers growing from the edges of this air plants leaves.
