I walked 2 miles to the conservatory from a downtown hotel. The fee of $4 is paid on the honor system. One pays with their credit card and a machine that looks similar to what you use in a parking lot. The conservatory is a series of connected greenhouses. Here are the themes of the various greenhouses: orchids, tropical plants, cacti, and a greenhouse with a theme based on flower & plant color (exquisitly beautiful). I loved each of the greenhouses. I took my time and walked through them twice. The most unusual flower I saw was on the blooming "Tiger Eye Flowering Maple" (Abutilon Tiger Eye). It looked like a red lampshade with yellow veins and a yellow border on all the petals. I climbed the water tower before I walked back to downtown Seattle. There is a restroom at the Asian Art Museum.
