Duncan Gardens at Manito Park
This first photo was taken inside the greenhouse with Pat standing under a very large leaf that is a part of a much larger plant. I don't remember what the name of this plant is but it is big. And this will give a bit of a feel for what the place looks like.
There is a fairly large cactus garden inside one of the greenhouse rooms. Here is Pat admiring a String of Pearls plant that is in that room. I don't know if it has stickers like the cactus plants or not.
I found the juxtaposition of the daisies in the foreground and the cactus plants in the background to be interesting.
Here is an overall view of the formal Duncan Gardens from above. We didn't go down into the garden area, partially because it was HOT outside, about 90 degrees.
There are formal rose gardens and a Japanese garden that are both beautiful. I do have some photos of both in my album in Photoshop and may try to upload a few here, but probably will wait until I get home to look into that. I have Photoshop Elements version 5 installed on this laptop but it is a bit different from v4 that I have been using. I think I like it but it will take a little more playing with before I feel comfortable with it. Anyway, if you ever have the chance to visit Manito Park in Spokane, do so, especially if you are interested in gardening.
Here are a few more photos from that set:
Here is a kind of general view inside one of the rooms.
A neat area within the greenhouse that also includes a small stream with a waterfall.
There are some real large plants inside that place- here are a few of them.
As we were leaving the greenhouse I looked back & noticed this scene. The place is full of beauty.
Thank you for sharing with us and glad that you and Pat are having a nice trip.
And string of pearls is a succulent, not a true cactus, and it doesn't have stickers. :-)
Love and hugs,
Hope you are having a great trip.
Take care, Meow
