That just means you have to go back again!  That is my favorite spot in Balboa Park, a great source of inspiration.  So many wonderful plants presented in an intimate setting -- even the huge Caryota fits.  (Well, just barely.  Last time I was there the spear was smashing up against the ceiling.)

Thanks for the photos, please go back and take more.

Thanks for sharing your pics. I missed this area when I was out there many years ago. It looks nice.

Paul,

That's a nice conservatory.  Thanks for posting.  BTW, it's still "chilly" here today.
