Wednesday Explorers Club ~ Plant Field Trip!

 Last week we toured cactuses in the Beardsley Zoo Greenhouse (Bridgeport, CT). Today we're heading back into the humid zone to find some flowers and more leaves.

What I like about this flower is the contrast of textures.

Who doesn't love a carnivorous plant? Not only do they snack on flies, they do it while looking lovely.

There are so many textures and sizes of leaves in this mini-jungle.

I love the way the colors blend in these leaves. They may look smooth, but the edges are serrated, like a steak knife.
