Palm House

Inside the Palm House from yesterday's post you will find the large specimen trees belonging to the conservatory including these banana trees with long branches of fruit ready to ripen. Just over the left side of the man's head a grand piano is visible - what a great place for a recital!

Very tropical, and not a flake of snow in sight!

A lovely location, and an odd one for a piano!

Absolutely perfect, I can just imagine a recital there. I recognize just about every plant there Pat :)

I could spend hours in there. Make it days if it were snowing outside.

Can't imagine a better place to spend some time during the cold months. We had banana trees on a golf course in south Florida. Other golfers usually beat me to them, though. I didn't think that was very nice, or considerate! :)

I'm feeling frightfully warm all of a sudden! :-) Yes, a recital would be magical there.

Back in the mid 1960s I drove the streetcar past Allan Gardens so many times but I never paid a visit there. Thanks to you I now know what I am missing. PS: On these cold days it is wise of you photograph indoors.

Plants like that are plentiful down here. And we don't have to put them inside.

Dyed red hair, eh? One more smidgeon of information . . .

Beautiful looking greenery.

The greenery is startling compared to the snow outside.

This is an upbeat shot for the dead of winter.

Isn't it amazing that bananas actually ripen in there?
