Oak Park Conservatory

Oak Park Conservatory.
Mostly pictures today.
I photographed these leaves, too.
The place is just chock full of things to inspire. Plumeria.
Above are buds for unusual five-petaled cactus flowers. The only flower that was open was unfortunately stuck under a twig and behind a sign. Below is a more common cactus flower.
Amazing primitive ferns!(huge! it was some sort of tree fern. I was standing there eye level with that huge curl above.)
Little plantlets are growing along the edges of this succulent.
A pomegranate.

Lovely. I have never in my life seen a pomegranate grow, which is odd because I am sure I have stayed or even lived in countries where they do grow!!!
