The promenade garden or the tropical house is going bananas.

This week I head on over to the park to see the new exhibit at the Conservatory, The Promenade Garden. It’s a collection of spring flowers and bulbs.

 

Temp 0°C and sunny.

I don't recall ever seeing this statue before. It's by the turtle pond and looks like the body part of it will grow plants like a Chia Pet.

I'm always drawn to tropical plants that have one flower growing on top of them.
