Here are some photos from the Huntington Library’s Conservatory. It’s divided into several sections, like rainforest, cloud rainforest, and bog.

this plant is just one leaf! it’s a 15-foot tall leaf that’s a compound leaf, divided into many leaflets. it’s an amorphophallus titanium, otherwise known as the stinky corpse flower.

HUNTINGTON – CHINESE GARDEN

A stone mosaic floor in a courtyard.

 

A lose up of the floor, you can see how it’s made up of tiny stones. I took my flip-flops off and walked on it barefoot, and it felt nice.

I heard someone say these were lotus plants.

HUNTINGTON LIBRARY

I’m going to take a break from my Hawaii photos for about a week. On Saturday I went to the Huntington Library and Garden. I ended up becoming a member so I can go whenever I want.
