Natural Inspiration

I went wild photographing the abundance of natural inspiration in the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.  Tropical plants have the most bizarre, sculptural and beautiful flowers and foliage.  It was an absolute visual feast.

The Conservatory of Flowers.  Beautiful Victorian greenhouse architecture.  Not as big as the glass house at Kew Gardens, but still stunning.

I have no idea what this plant is, but I love the alien-like seed pods.

They change colour as they senesce, making them even more interesting.

Nepenthes spp.  carnivorous plant.

Gorgeous grating on the floor of the conservatory.
