Fort Worth sketches

Slacking, slacking.... yes, it's been a while since I posted. So here. A recent trip to Fort Worth allowed me a detour through the Botanical Garden, a place I had been wanting to visit.

First, a stop at the Tropical Biosphere.

It was just amazing to walk around in there. Huge plants, very humid, obviously, with several somewhat alien looking plants. Something you might imagine coming out of the latest alien hollywood flick.

This one is the King Fern.
The stalks are actually hairy! And the young growth looked like an embryo, all curled up ready to come crawling out. I'm telling you... alien babies, right there in Fort Worth, Texas!

And then off course, the Japanese Garden.

Beautiful, as all Japanese gardens are prone to be.
