Recent Finds in Selby Gardens 6

January 7, 2017

On New Year’s Eve day I photographed the pendant inflorescence (husband speak for “hanging-down flower”) of a bromeliad that belongs to the genus Vriesea, shown in the lefthand part of this diptych. When I turned around to continue walking in the Selby Garden’s conservatory, I almost ran into its very, very distant relative shown in the righthand part of the diptych.

    Thanks for my chuckle of the day. What wonders of nature and your delightful ability to see their reflections in the mundane world!

    • You’re welcome, Patricia. Funny thing is, David told me tonight after seeing the photos that he saw the similarity at the time, too! Now I wonder if the workers did that on purpose. That would be even funnier.

  4. Brilliant comparison, Linda. A photographic simile that produces a smile.

    • Thank you, Andy. I like your “simile” “smile” pairing!

      • Well, I had to follow Ken’s eclectic, electric comment. That was so clever!

  5. Too funny – and a great coincidence – I just posted a photo of the same flower, growing in a conservatory up here. I was kicking myself for not getting the name of it. Thank your significant other for me, please!

    • That is a coincidence! I did thank him; he was amused. (Did you get the relative, too?)
