Fall flora

November 8, 2011

During a recent walk around the Smithsonian museums in DC, one of my daughters and I were pleased to see many flowers still showing their colors. We took several photos, and some are below. Among them are foxtail fern, toad lily (the two pics of purple speckled flowers), yellow/pink rose, magnolia tree seed pod, and dancing ladies ginger (the three pics of the hanging pink flowers with yellow petals at the ends of tentacles). Unfortunately, I don’t know the names of all of these plants–I only know the fern, lily, and ginger flower names because of the small signs next to them (and what great names they are).

    Very interesting looking flowers! I’ve been to that wonderful Smithsonian museum and it sure was fun. Wish I had seen flowers as pretty as these along the way then, though! Nice!
