My previous two posts gave you an idea of what things could be seen inside the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver. This post is to show you the grounds outside. I don’t think much commentary will be needed. Just take in the beauty of this spot.

The fountain waters would rise and fall, sometimes reaching many feet upward, sometimes only inches.

Here, the roof of the conservatory can be seen behind the fountains.

I loved these little maple leaves that were placed around the fountain’s edge. It’s details like this that are fun to discover!

Knife EdgeA sculpture called “Knife Edge” is displayed near the fountains.

Speaking of sculptures, this group of three appears to be posing for their picture.

We not only saw birds on our stop at the Bloedel Conservatory, but an abundance of plants as well. I don’t know their names, but feel free to identify these lovelies in the comments.

 

There were also pretty water features. Make a wish, and see the fish…

And a few other interesting things nestled amid the plants and trees.

Next post, I’ll show you the grounds outside the conservatory.
