Although our Mt. Rainier visit was the highlight of Mary’s visit, she also wanted to visit the W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory at Wright Park, one of those places I visited several times when I first moved to Tacoma but have somehow managed to overlook in recent years, though I’m not sure why after our visit.
It didn’t hurt that it was a beautiful day and we began our visit with a trip through Wright Park before being greeted by the Conservatory.
I started snapping shots almost before we got inside when greeted by these beautiful lilies.
I’ve never had the patience to raise begonias,
but I might appreciate their beauty all the more knowing how hard they are to raise year after year.
Not sure what this allium-like flower is, but it fit in nicely with all the exotic plants surrounding it.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a botanical conservatory if it didn’t contain exotics I'd never encounter anywhere else.
I sometimes think of parks as places to take kids,
but even three old folks can find pleasure in a quiet visit to a beautiful spot.
