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.

    • 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.

      • 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?)
