It’s been so long since my last post, and I am sorry to say that I had completely forgotten about my blog over the holidays! I did have a few opportunities to visit some botanical conservatories in the area in December and January, and so that is what I will be highlighting. All of the photos below were taken in the Rutherford Conservatory, at the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden. All are of tropical Rhododendron species, with the exception of the last image.
This last image is of a Gordonia bloom, which is related to the Camellia. It is sometimes informally referred to the “Fried Egg Flower” due to it’s yellow and white colors.
