Water lilies at the Phipps Conservatory

If you are just as curious as I was about whether water lilies at the Phipps Conservatory aquatic garden are blooming or not, here’s your answer.

終於在徹底搬家之前等到Phipps的睡蓮。

After the sunrise at Mt. Washington, I dropped by the Phipps Conservatory on my way home to check out its aquatic garden. It wasn’t perfect condition. I wanted to show up at around sunrise. The last time I went at sunrise hour in early June, the ponds were quite empty. I wrote Phipps, trying to find out when the water lilies will be there the lazy way, but they were too busy to reply to this apparently lazy inquiry.

早上在華盛頓山看完日出,回家路上順便經過Phipps溫室花園看看睡蓮到了沒。其實是想日出前後去,但六月初特地在日出時分跑到Phipps,發現池塘空空如也,很懶惰地寫信問Phipps睡蓮什麼時候要來,想必大家忙得不是很想回這種懶人問題。

I decided to try my luck again. The photos were taken on June 28. Some of the water lilies were in full bloom and some were just budding.

六月底決定在試一次,6月28日,一半的睡蓮已經全開,一半還是花苞。
