On Easter Sunday my sister and I went to Winnipeg.
I went to photograph birds and she was happy to join me.
We did see lots of birds,but they will wait for another post.
Today I will take you to the Conservatory at the Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg.
One end of the Conservatory is a tropical house and the other end is more floral.This place is used for wedding and family pictures.The flowers change with the seasons,but are always quite lovely.
I do not know the names of some of these plants and flowers.
The Hibiscus is such a stunning flower.
Being Easter the floral displays had lots of Easter Lilies.
I liked the delicate look of these flowers.
More easter Lilies as well as other flowers.
Sunlight streamed through the windows,and lit up this leaf.
This is in the tropical part.The paths wind through here and it feels hot and humid.
Looking up into the trees and vines.
What a tangle of growth!
I have no idea what kind of tree this is,but I like the designs on the trunk.
Some of my readers have Banana Trees on their yard,so I had to take a picture of this.No it's not on my yard,but it is in Manitoba.They look like they are thriving in this tropical atmosphere.
I see spanish Moss on pictures from Florida,but this is as close as we will get in Manitoba.
I just liked the look of this little plant,tucked in under the trees.
For those of my readers who love waterfalls,here is one for you.I will admit,it is small,but still pretty.
This was in a corner of the Tropical House.
Over the last few days I have felt some deep and tender emotions.The storms of life are still not settled,but this I know that God will see me through.With this in mind here is the thought for today:
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass.
It's about learning to dance in the rain.
