The fish are from the conservatory's koi pond, which actually is part of the tropical plant display inside the conservatory and not part of the bulb show. I neglected to use my polarizing filter to blunt the glare, but decided to post the top image nevertheless because I like the piggybacking going on.
The bulb show runs through Friday; on Saturday, the conservatory will sell the bulbs on a first-come, first-serve basis. In May, look for the conservatory to again let the public come in -- on a one-day only basis (because that's all they need) -- and dig out the bulbs in the Sunken Garden as they get ready to put in the summer arrangements.
If you're interested in getting free bulbs that way, visit the consevatory's Web site and sign up for the email notification they'll send out verifying the date and time.
On April 17-18, the conservatory will hold its annual orchid show. Very pretty orchids on display throughout the indoor premises.
Above: A neat convergence of species and foliage. The green "wall" on the right actually is a huge foliage leaf.

Above: Second of two interesting flower stamens. This petal reminded me of the Rolling Stones tongue logo.
