The Gaiser Conservatory at Manito City Park always has a seasonal flower display of some kind.  When we were there last April it was Cyclamen, a flower I find very difficult to photograph well.  I spent some time trying to get good photos and these are the results, some good, some less so.

If I didn't collect orchids, I think I would be into Begonias.  Their endless variety, both of leaf forms and flowers, is fascinating.  Here are some pictures taken at the Gaiser Conservatory in Manito City Park in Spokane, Washington, and in the Devonian Botanic Gardens in Devon, Alberta.
