Grey skies led me to the W.W. Seymour Conservatory, an oasis of warmth and beauty in the urban cold of a Puget Sound fall. We are deep in it here, and the rain comes off and on. Clouds make the nights seem longer and the days shorter. A lemon tree sits in the entrance with large fruits hanging heavy on strong branches. The orchids grow in suspended containers from the ceiling, attached to walls, and, sometimes up from pots on the floor.
I’ve saved these images in the Autumn Portfolio as well as in this post. Stay warm and dry. The shortest day is nigh.
