Volunteer Park Conservatory (Seattle): Part Two, The Cactus House

Unfortunately I was unable to document all of the plants here, and there is a bit of a reason that I must fess up to right now. Due to my complete and total love for so many of these plants as houseplants, I did overload the capacity my home has for their maintenance and upkeep this past year. Let's face it, there are only so many plants that can stand in the light, and I cannot care for them all—not yet at least. 
Believe it or not, this Jade Tree was started from a large cutting back in 1916. Wow.


  1. Beautiful, beautiful shots, Ann. Thank you.

  2. Patricia,
    Thank you for looking at them!

    I am so happy now that I have a new camera. Hopefully I will be able to learn all of its tricks soon.

  3. Cactuses (Cacti?) are such weird plants.

  4. As you can probably guess (or maybe remember from my post about the VP Conservatory last fall) this is a favorite place of much beauty! And a wonderful place to spend a cold winter afternoon....

  5. Wow. Ya gotta love that antique Jade Tree. Amazing.
