Each season, the Conservatory showed case different flowers that are in season. This is a place where I love to be around, and trying to preserve its existence. Facing financial difficulties, the Conservatory almost has to close many times in the past.
It is sad to see it disappear so I'd like to get as many people to visit it as often as they can. The Belle Isle Conservatory is one of the best landmarks in Detroit.
Giant Red Lily
I could not believe my eyes when I see this giant red lily in the garden. It was so huge, and beautiful but very difficult for me to photograph since it was set way in the back by the wall.
This was as far as can zoom in to have a closer look! The color had a deeper shade of orange in this photo, though I remembered it in red! My camera had a hard time capturing red and purple colors though.
Pink and White Lily
Can you see the size of these lilies? Giant, huge, and humongous are the words I had to use to describe these oversize flowers.
Beautiful Pink Lily
I like the white strips on the petals of this pink lily! I didn't do justice in taking these pictures though.
Next time, I am going to take Betchai with me! She is my woman hero, and she can hike through this jungle!
If you want to stretch your money, Belle Isle is really a nice place to spend the day. There are many things to do there for free or at a very reasonable price.
