Is that in the conservatory?
Are those brown things on top spent blooms? They look like cones on an evergreen.

I was thinking they were the beginnings of blooms because the photo was taken in Sept or Oct...Can't wait to go in January, maybe we'll have to make a date!
(Oh and yes this is at the conservatory at Volunteer Park Seattle!) I tip my hat to you.
