SkyWatch Friday # 54

As you walk through the visitors' center at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, this is the first thing you see, the most beautiful view of the conservatory. I took several shots of it from different angles. The sky really co-operated that day and there were lots of clouds in the sky.




These last two shots are of the visitors' center, that is of the roof.

There's something very attractive about conservatories, especially the really large ones. It looked like lovely weather that day.

Nice skies over a nice conservatory. I like the one with just the top dome with the sky background. It makes nice patterns.

Reader Wil said...

Very beautiful, Pam. The sky is great as a background to the conservatory. I can understand that you like walking here.
The weather is getting better. I rang a contractor about the damage, and he said that the exceptionally hard rain had caused problems with more people. He'll
come next week.
