A cameilla, shedding pollen, inside of the Linnaean House.
This and the following photos were taken inside of the Climatron, a large geodesic dome, constructed in 1960, which serves as a greenhouse for tropical plants.
This plant reminded me of Christmas.
And this one, Advent.
These photos aren't quite up to my standards, unfortunately. The Garden prohibits the use of tripods in the greenhouses.
These are bananas.
One of several waterfalls in the Climatron.
This and the following photos were taken in the Temperate House, which features plants from the middle latitudes. This is a carnivorous plant, one of many in this section of the greenhouse.
The Garden was originally the site of Henry Shaw's country house, which has been preserved for us to enjoy. Here is a room decorated for Christmas.
These photos were taken on December 20th.
