COLOSSUS SUNNY MORNING

back-lit m. sieboldii colossus' pendulous flowers are 3 inches across. this small magnolia reminds me of the lunch-box tree in 'tick-tock of oz,' as the branches are lined with of buds of various sizes.baptisia and columbine are back-lit by a strong morning sun.
enkinanthus flowers drinking in the sun.

Hi,
The "Cowles Conservatory" is the greenhouse at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. Maybe it was built after you were here. There's a fabulous glass fish sculpture inside, along with tall palms.

Hi Neza,
The fish was there when i left mpls in 1984, but i missed the conservatory. How lovely!

More lovelies! Your yard is like a botanic garden!
Wonderful close-ups!
I love to see the plants back-lit by morning and afternoon light, don't you?
