Flowers at Pittsburgh Zoo

Here are some of the photos of the flowers I saw at Pittsburgh Zoo when we went there a couple of weeks ago with Jen and Jim's family. We originally planned to go for a camping but we did not push through because of some unavoidable reasons. We decided to go to the zoo instead so the kids could enjoy watching the different kinds of critters.
Anyhow, the only flower that I recognized here is the marigold. Everything else, I don't have any idea of their names.
Oh I like this bright orange fruit-like bloom from a tree.
And this one too, I think orange looks great when it's around brown and green color. What do you think?
These are inside the PPG Aquarium placed on top of a big rock. 
I like this vine too.
This is on the place where the orangutan's are running around.
This is just a quick update before we go to church. Have a blessed Sunday everyone. Thanks for your visit and comments!

  10. What a lovely collection of photographs. You had your eyes open for more than just the animals. I laugh because children would have no interest at all in plants!
