The greenhouse was originally built to overwinter citrus trees and bushes, but today houses many subtropical cacti and camellias. Camellias steal the show in late winter with their blooms, and several of these plants in the Linnean House date back to the 1930s and 1940s.
The greenhouse was named in honor of Carl Linnaeus, the father of modern nomenclature or "the father of taxonomy." The Linnean House has been through several renovations before arriving full-circle at it's original design and purpose. The house has also endured a major hailstorm in 1927, which spurred one of the renovations.
This photo is done with an almost HDR processing "look" to overcome the horrible skies with which I had to deal last week. I like how it turned out. Please comment with your opinion, too, as I may dabble a bit more with this technique in the future.
